Fourth. To Hannah, wife of Joseph Dodd, of
Donington, and to Henrietta Flinders, my two
Sisters of the half blood, I bequeath one hun- -dred pounds sterling each; but in case of

of the parent to be given to the children in
equal proportions.

to be set up, by permission of the minister
and churchwardens, in the parish Church in
Donington in the county of Lincoln, against
the wall facing the communion door of the
same church; and the said four slabs to have
engraved upon them such inscriptions to the
memory of my great grand-father, grand-father,
father, and myself, as the pious sentiments of
my brother Samuel, with the approbation of my
wifes may dictate.
