      ? 4. And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid, That Joshua
      Wood, Travis Thigpen, Jesse Price, John Wolf and Gideon Hose be, and
      they are hereby appointed Commissioners, who, [or a majority of them]
      shall have power and authority to fix on the site of the public
      buildings for the said county of Emanuel, and to purchase in behalf of
      said county, a tract of land, which shall contain not less than fifty,
      nor more than one hundred acres, and which shall be as near the centre
      of said county as practicable, on which the public buildings of said
      county shall be erected; & the said commissioners are also authorized to
      lay off the said tract of land in lots at their discretion, and after
      reserving to the county a sufficient number thereof for county purposes,
      may sell and dispose of the remainder upon such terms, & in such manner
      as they may think most conducive to the public interest; and the monies
      arising therefrom shall, after paying for said tract of land, be applied
      towards the building of a Court-house and Jail for said county, which
      buildings the Commissioners are also authorized to let to the lowest
      bidder at public outcry, giving at least thirty days notice of the time
      and place of letting the same, taking bond and security from the person
      contracting for the faithful performance of the contract -- provided,
      that until the Court-house shall be erected, the courts shall be holden,
      and elections held at the house of Stephen RICH in the said county of
      Emanuel. ? 5. And be it further enacted, That if the above
      Commissioners, or a majority of them, cannot or do not agree on the
      place for the public scite, then and in that case, the Justices of the
      Inferior court of said county are authorized to appoint some fit and
      proper person to ascertain the centre of said county, and the Justices
      of said court are authorised to allow him reasonable compensation for
      his services, to be paid out of the county fund; AND IT IS ALSO ENACTED,
      that the above commissioners, or a majority of them, shall fix the
      public site thereat, or as near as conveniency will admit of.
