Item All the rest and residue of my real and personal estate of what nature of kind whatsoever either in America, Europe or elsewhere after my debts or legacies shall be paid I give devise and bequeath to my said dear son.
Item My desire is that none of my estate shall continue at the risque of my Executors but that the land and Negroes herein before devised to my son shall be kept and amintained at the expense and risque of my said son and the profits arising therefrom to be discounted for to his use and benefit and also that the other parts of my personal estate not now consisting in money or securities for money and otherwise herein disposed of shall as soon as my be converted into money for the benefit of my estate and uses of this my Will.
Item My Will and desire is that the legacies herein before bequeathed to my two daughters should be placed out at interest in such a manner as my Executors shall think fit and that they shall be maintained by such interest, but what may be more than sufficient for such maintenance shall be also placed out at interest and paid to each of them together with the principal at their respective ages of eighteen years or days of marriage, but in case either of them should dye before such age and day of marriage then what is herein bequeathed to her so dying shall be divided and paid to her surviving sister at her said age or day of marriage and my said son equally if he shall survive at his age of twenty-one years and in case both my said daughters dye before such ages or days of marriage then the whole bequests to them shall be paid to my son at his age aforesaid. And in case my said son should dye before his age of twenty-one years then what is herein before bequeathed to my said son shall descent to and rest in my said daughter or daughter surviving him.
Item I hereby appoint my Executors to be Guardians of my said son and desire that he may be educated in England. Lastly I nominate and appoint Benjamin Tasker, Esq. and Col.
