The enumerator included a little map indicating the boundaries of this ward. On the west it is bounded by the "Town Line between Carradoc and Ekfrid". On the north it includes the southern half of the 4th concession. On the East it is bounded by the "No. 12 Side Road", that is the line between lots 12 and 13. On the south it includes the "First Range south of Longwoods Road" and is bounded by the Muncey Indian Reservation.

The Enumeration District per which I was appointed comprises the 3rd Ward of the Township of Caradoc in the County of Middlesex, and comprises within its limits 15211 acres is bounded on the south east and north east by the Township of Caradoc on the south and West by Ekfrid and north west and North by Adelaide and the Village of Strathroy and is traversed by the Calling road called the Adelaide road which was graded by the County a four years ago and runs nearly through the Centre of the Township. Branching from the Village of Delaware on the London and Chatham road and taking a southwesterly direction it branches within three miles of Strathroy onto the Kalesoith and Strathroy road. The Third Ward contains no streams of any importance although two or three small streams traverse the Ward from East to West until they fall into the Sydenham or Bear Creek. There is one sawmill turned by one of the aforesaid streams, the only sotilary (sic) one in the Ward chiefly engaged in custom work for the farmers in the neighbourhood. My district contains three school houses, two of frame and one of Log. The size of the Frame ones is 24x30 each. The log is 22x28. My Ward contains neither Church nor Store nor Tavern.

The soil is chiefly a sandy loam more or less mixed with Clay and was originally covered by the finest oak forest probably in C.W. and has furnished the Stave dealer since the opening of the Great Western Railway. Several hundreds thousands West India Staves and some Butts and is the principle cause of the backward state of agriculture in the Ward as Staves has asorbed the attention and industry of the Majority of the settlers up to the present time, but as the timber is nearly exhausted the industry of its inhabitants will be more confined to the soil and then we indulge in the hope that before the next Census a higher average may reasonably be expected in the products of the soil.
