...that after all the legacies herein mentioned shall be paid that the balance of the money... to be loaned out at interest until the interest amts to 270 dollars and the whole amt to be divided between my heirs equally... the reason that I gave all my heirs except Eliza L. Wright the sum of 200 dollars is that I think I have been that much benefit to her and her husband by letting them have the use of my farm and stock.
