How to input this legal description into ArcMap using COGO tool?

I have a legal description that I need to create in ArcMap, and I'm not certain how to input some of the descriptions.

Here are a couple of the descriptions I need to input:

If I only input the part that states:

 "...the chord of which bears North 47° 52' 22" West 88.90 feet to a point of reverse curve"

From each section and leave out:

"...thence 90.89 feet along the arc of a 125.00 radius curve to the left"

Then it roughly follows the correct path with a straight line, but it should be slightly curved.

I believe each section is describing a single curved line, but there are 4 parameters, and with the COGO tool, the most I can enter for a curve is three!

So, for the underlined blue and green descriptions in the above image, if I enter these, then it does create straight line segments that roughly follow the path:

Blue:

Green:

But how do I add the

"...thence 90.89 feet along the arc of a 125.00 radius curve to the left"

So that it creates the curved line?

Click the arrow next to Direction-Distance and go to Curve.  You will be able to add the Chord, Radius, Chord Direction and turn direction for the curve.

Thanks, Karin, but there are 4 to 5 parameters in each description:

For example, I believe this describes a single line:

Thence 90.89 feet along the arc of a 125.00 foot radius curve to the left, through a central angle of 41° 39' 42", the chord of which bears North 47° 52' 22" West 88.90 feet to a point of reverse curve.

So, which parameters would I input into the Curve?

Ian,

This is how I enter it as a curve:

Chord - 88.90'

Radius 125'

Chord Direction - N47-52-22W

Turn - Left

Hope that helps.
