Mystery Monday: Couldn't Find His Estate

Alexandria Gazette
October 7, 1873

COULDN'T FIND HIS ESTATE -- A man from Ohio, who lately bought a farm somewhere in Fauquier county, was at Bristoe station a few days ago enquiring for it.  All he seemed to know was that he had bought a farm of a land agent, and paid for it, but he neither knew now where the land agent was, or his "earthly" possessions.  As he could learn nothing, he left, looking very sad.  Mr. Gaines seeing this, very kindly offered to sell him another farm, but the gentleman from Ohio looked sadder still, and went on toward the "Forrest."  ~ Manassas Gazette
