My farm, located in Wilmot, which I valued at two thousand dollars: I desire may be purchased by my dear son Samuel, and that from the amount of the purchase money ($2,000) may be deducted the sum of $140 which he has already paid, and also all other lawful demands which he can make appear against me. Providing that any dispute may arise respecting the value of the Wilmot Lot, my desire is that my Executors hereinafter named my appoint (two) disinterested persons to assign the value of the payments to be made up by the time my youngst child is of in such a way and such a time as may be agreed on by my dear son Samuel and my Executors. Then my will is that out of my estate shall be reserved two thousand dollars, the interest on which, my dear wife Elizabeth Kinsey shall receive every year for her support as long as she lives.

"It is my desire that my dear wife Elizabeth Kinsey shall have the management of the farm in Waterloo, and I trust she will seek the advice and council of my Executors whenever she shall deem necessary. Immediately after my death, whatever stock or movables on my estate that are not wanting may be sold, and also the crops on my farm at Wilmot as soon ass conveniently be harvested and converted in to money, the money arising from the crops at Wilmot and also of the stock and movables at Waterloo shall be applied to remove the encumbrance off the farm at Wilmot and that every effort be made to pay off the debts on that farm.
