8644. UNEARNED INCREMENT, Definition.—

If [the public lands are] sold in
lots at a fixed price, as first proposed, the best
lots will be sold first; as these become occupied,
it gives a value to the interjacent ones,
and raises them, though of inferior quality, to
the price of the first.—
To James Monroe. Washington ed. i, 347. Ford ed., iv, 53.
