Sale of the Van Lew Estate.
No steps have been taken as yet to sell the Van Lew property. Nothing will be done until after Mr. J. R. V. Daniel, as counsel for the estate, brings a friendly suit, in order to have the real estate sold by order of the court, so as to give a clear title. Mr. Daniel will file his bill in a few days.
