Any remainder after his death to return to my estate. I among others was sued as executrix of my husband Thomas Johnson (shff) in sundry suits by British creditors and have expended a considerable sum of money in my defense which I think I ought to recover and feeling myself under great obligations to the Reverend John Poindexter for his assistance in shaking off said suits I give him all that he may be able to recover back of said money expended.

Poindexter 1/6 part of my estate that my remain after the aforesaid specified legacies being the part my deceased daughter their mother would have received.

Barret to be equally divided except Sarah Overton who is to have $300 less than the others on account of a Negro woman loaned her and now in her possession named Alice. I understand that no part of the estate of my late husband can be sold for the payment of my debts and to raise the fund before mentioned for the support of John Kinney and being doubtful a sufficiency I cannot believe that any of my five daughters would object to a sale of so much of the estate I received from my husband to make up the deficiency should that be the case or any of my three grandchildren children to my daughter Elizabeth should object, if so those objecting shall be excluded from all share of my estate of which I have the right to dispose.
