Item. I give and bequeath to my beloved wife Temperance the use and im- provement of all my estate both real and personal, excepting such as shall be dis- posed of as above directed, and excepting also my land with the buildings thereon situated in Brighton, to have and to hold so long as she remains my widow. Item. I give and bequeath to my grandchildren, Asa COOK, Nancy DAVIS and Lousia JACKSON, children of my late daughter, Temperance, now deceased, the sum of 5 dollars each to be paid to them within one year after the decease of me and my wife. And whereas I on the 1st of April. 1824, hired a farm of Martha LIVERMORE covenanting to pay 85 dollars annually therefor according to her lease of that date & whereas Israel L. WORCESTER, husband of my daughter Ruth by a verbal agree- ment between us occupies the same and agrees to pay all the rent, therefore I give to my executrix in trust all my farm in Brighton with the building thereon to be conveyed to my daughter Ruth WORCESTER or her children whenever and as soon as the said WORCESTER shall have paid up all the said rent as aforesaid and provided it be paid within 2 years after my decease so that I shall not have been called upon for any part thereof nor my estate be liable to be forever. But if no so paid by said WORCESTER the farm and buildings are to be and remain in fee to my executrix and her heirs & assigns forever.
