furniture as will make her to do her necessary cooking.

several valuations put on them by five disinterested men, chosen for
that purpose, also all my perishible property, with the residue of
my household and kitchen furniture and whereas, as I have one son
and daughter, that have been dead some years, and have left their
children, orphans, in the world, my will is that my nine living sons
and daughters shall out of the value of my negros and other property,
give unto their several heirs and equal portions, that they would a

I also appoint my two sons vis:
