clothe and help sustain him in times of want, as I here appoint said E. W.
Kendall my executor to sell all my personal property after my death as soon
as circumstances will allow, and after adjusting and paying what I may owe,
then holding each begater to account for my property I may have advanced to
them in times passed, then make such division of the remnant as would make
all equal in the distribution which they shall have accounted for any
property I may have advanced upon any previous occasion.
This I expect then to account to my execution for at true value.
