   Date: 23 June 1792
   Town: Bar Harbor
   Grantor: Thomas Wasgatt [no designation of Jr. or 2nd]
   Grantee: Samuel Hull
   Description: 60 acres
      [Begin] at the southwest corner of Ezra Leland's lot;
      run first S 45° W 180 rods to a stake;

      then following said line to the first bound.
   Notes:
      1. This deed incorrectly reads N 45° E, which would be a retracing of a portion of the previous boundary line. The correct direction is N 45° W, as given in the same line in 1:371–372 above.
      2. This distance should be 178 rods, given that distance in 1:371–372 above and the relative dimensions of the parcel shown on the Peters Plan.
