      ". . . I give and bequeath in the following manner: Viz. First of all my
      desire is that the whole of my estate be sold at public sale (if my
      Executors hereafter named see cause) and the money arising by the sale
      after my just debts are paid to be equally divided between my four
      children Viz. (Daniel Frier, Robert Frier, Hannah Frier, and Pheby
      Frier.) Except ten pounds and my desire is that my oldest son, Daniel
      Frier, should have that over and above an equal part with the rest of the
      children. The whole when divided to be put out at interest, at the
      discretion of my executors and not to be paid the children until they
      arrive (the boys) to the age of twenty-one and the girls to the age of
      eighteen or marriage. My desire also is that my son Daniel Frier be
      bound to his uncle Robert Muir at the discretion of my executors to learn
      the trade and mastery of a Taylor, and my son Robert Frier to his uncle
      George Kilgore to learn the trade of a blacksmith. Also that my two
      daughters live with their mother provided its in her power to provide
      suitably for them and takes proper care of their education, and in case
      it should not be in her power or she should neglect their education, that
      then my Executors provide for them in the best manner they can. My
      desire also is that my Executors pay my wife whatever they think
      reasonable for a few years towards the maintenance of the two girls that
      live with her. My wife's riding saddle is not to be appraised nor sold
      as a part of my estate, neither a set of curtains which she claims . My
      desire is that George Kilgore and John Moss be Executors of this my last
      will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and
      affixed my seal this 15th day of March 1771."
