And any one of the negroes she may choose to wait on and attending her during her life- and if any of my executors shall move away they shall then settle with the others the estate of affairs. Item. It is further more my will and desire that a thousand dollars shall be put in to the Banke of the United States or into the hand of my executors for the presiding elders of this district to collect the interest for the purpose above mentioned, who shall give up a just amount to my executors and bishops how the same is expended with receipts for it, the same to be collected annually and expended.
