The railways are promoting "a large grant of lands from the United States Government, embracing all varieties of soil and timber adapted to Farming, Fruit Growing and Grazing purposes. The railroad passes through the middle of the grant, from end to end, most conveniently. Six navigable streams traverse this land grant...The Company sells at low prices on liberal terms, giving the man of small means a chance to buy, improve and pay for his land from the products of the soil." (from a paragraph towards the bottom of the broadside).
