      To my son Frank, I five all my land lying east of the above described line to Wyndham Robertson’s line.
      All my land lying west of the portion above given to my son John, from John’s timbered Land west I give to my son Samuel and his children, this portion of land that I give to my son Samuel and his children is to be in the care and charge of William Galliher, who is to sell said land at such time as he may think best, and the proceeds of said piece of land to be applied to the benefit of Samuel Smith and his four children.
      To my son Frank, I give the “Brown Mare” and to my son John, I give the Bay horse. The young sorrel horse to be sold by William Galliher, and the proceeds to be applied by him to the payment of Doctor bills, the wagon and farming implements to belong to John and Frank jointly.
