WHEREAS, the lands in chapter 146 of the acts of Preamble. 1906 mentioned or referred to, are severally of but little value and consist in part of a number of small parcels or parts of various lots, and have been acquired by the town of Liverpool by expropriation, purchase or otherwise, in various titles and from various owners, and the said town has had for several years undisputed ownership or possession of the same;

And whereas, it is desirable that the said town on the sale of said or any of said lands should be able to give a deed of conveyance thereof with the usual covenants;
