Amaneunsis Monday: George Schwalls - Another Indenture/Promissory Note/Mortgage

"An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin – some we never met – others we see a time in their life before we knew them." - from Geneabloggers

 The following was found in Johnson County, Georgia, Deed Book G, pages 502-503.  

 (You may click on the images of the original to have a larger view of them.  There were three words I could not transcribe.  I think I did a pretty good job considering the atrocious handwriting of the courthouse clerk!)
