to the railway station on the day of my departure a man thrust a
hand-bill upon me, and I took this into the railway carriage and read it

Estate A contains exactly 370 acres, B contains 116 acres, and C 74
acres.

estates was not offered for sale, and, for no reason in particular, I
became curious as to the area of that piece. How many acres did it
contain?
