HAMMOND made sale to Henry CARTER for 216 acres in Liberty of which $8,329.50 has been paid with $3,552.15 remaining due. Carter now claims he had no knowledge of any incumbrances, but has since been served with papers for water rights whereby Isaac TYSON Jr. diverted the water from parts of said land causing the land to be worth less than what he had agreed to pay for it. Carter asks for a decrease in price of the property. Allen PAINE Jr, Basil DORSEY and Francis S. JONES also testified validating Carter's claim; auctioneer was Thomas CARR. Basil testified that he had heard Dawson V. HAMMOND say, at the tavern of Daniel ROOT in Liberty, that Dawson did not believe there was any contract between his uncle Dennis HOWARD, dec'd and Isaac TYSON Jr. The court ruled that an abatement of $1,000 be made to Henry CARTER against the purchase price. Closed 1 Nov 1852. Agreement to Isaac TYSON Jr. of Baltimore from Dennis D. HOWARD for right of all the water of the Dollyhide Branch running through his tract "Howard's Paradise" in the ditch or race as it is now dug with right to enlarge it to width of six feet and also for the right at any and all times for the next ensuing forty years to enter upon the premises to mend or clean said ditch or race provided not injury to any crop or premises.
