So this grant line adjustment technique is much like single-proportion,
but applied to the grant area only. Many grant boundary field notes
call for natural objects of topography as part of the boundary description.
These calls, such as saddles, ridge tops and spurs are given
precedence in controlling the restoration of lost corners along
the grant boundary.
The field notes called for the boundary to follow the top of Blue
Ridge until it turned westerly. No adjustment of restoration should
place the angle point other than on the ridge as was indicated in
the original notes. The natural topographic calls and objects such
as boulders, or trees are given precedence to record distances and
