And for these purposes, she may at all times sell and dispose of any of my personal estate and purchase other and make such use and disposition of it as I might during my lifetime.

3rd It is my desire that she shall make such advancements to the children from time to time, as she shall think best for them, in lands, money and slaves or either, and make & execute any necessary conveyances, but each advancement is to be charged to the child that received it so that an equitable & equal division may be made at or after her death, among all my children or their heirs, but my wife is not to charge to any of my younger children any of the necessary expences for their maintainance or that may be incurred in giving them a good education, until they arrive at the age to twenty one years.

4th My wife is requested, whenever she may need counsel or aid of other in the management of my estate, to call on such of our children as she shall think proper, or such persons as she shall deem best, and make them reasonable compensation thereof.
