ARTICLE 12. SURVEYORS.
When any surveyor is required to survey lands which have been surveyed before, he shall make such survey by the magnetic meridian, but shall also return and certify in his plat the degree of the variation of the magnetic needle from the true meridian, at the time of the resurvey; and also (if the same can be done) the degree of such variation at the time of the original survey; and every survey, whether original or not, shall be made by horizontal measurement, unless otherwise provided by deed or contract.
Every surveyor shall promptly and faithfully execute any order of survey made by any court, of lands lying in his county, and make due return of a true plat and certificate thereof; and, if he fail to do so, he shall forfeit $50 to the party injured by such failure.
