I decided to post these next two documents together, partially because they’re small and they are basically the same thing, but mostly because I can’t figure out which one came first. The first is a receipt from the Land Office and the second is a receipt from the Receiver’s Office.
It is hereby certified that, in pursuance of law, Zenophile Lanctot, residing at Darlington, in Charles Mix County, Dakota Ty, on this day purchased of the Register of this Office the —– North West quarter —– of Section No. Thirteen (13) in Township No. Ninety nine (99) north of Range No. Sixtyseven (67) west of the 5th Principal Meridian, containing 160 acres, at the rate of one dollar and 25 cents per acre, amounting to Two Hundred dollars and ___ cents, for which the said Zenophile Lanctot has made payment in full as required by law.
Now, therefore, be it known that, on presentation of this certificate to the COMMISSIONER OF THE GENERAL LAND OFFICE, the said Zenophile Lanctot shall be entitled to receive a Patent for the lot above described.
