Said notice, so posted and published, as aforesaid, shall have appended thereto a particular and detailed statement of the property, the tax lien on which it is to be sold by giving the section, plate, block and lot number, together with such other description, if any, the treasurer shall direct. Such detailed statement and description shall also give the total sum for the nonpayment of which a tax lien is to be sold.
