I was reading a "Guide to Some Minerals and Rocks in Indiana," which was published in the 1950s, and in it there were these bewildering directions:
"Bluff along Mud Pine Creek 1.5 miles west of Rainsville, SW 1/ 4NE1/ 4sec. 29, T. 23 N., R. 8 W."
It is on p.38 of this pdf: https://scholarworks.iu.edu/dspace/bitstream/handle/2022/235/C04.pdf?sequence=1
How may those directions be made understandable?
