whereof is to be subdivided into three, fo will the firft ferve for Arrable, the second for Ley Ground, and the third and last for Meadow, it there be any. And if one sheet will not contain the whole, then may you take two. or three, or fo 'inany as you fee convenient.

Next you are to take the Plot,' and general Survey of the whole, according to the Rules before delivered, and fee if the Sum of all the Particulars agree with the Total, then you may couclude the work is right, but most commonly the Particulars will somewhat exceed the General Survey; and in this Case, that both may agree, you are to reduce the Sum of every Mans Par. ticulars answerable to the Proportion of his Ground, which may be effected by the Golden Rule. For, if in the whole Field (which admit it be 1000 Acres) the Particulars exceed the: Ge peral Survey 3 Acres, what fall 20 Acres? the Answer will be, 8 Perches, and so much Kam to deduct out of the Sum
