2nd. It is my will;- Lea shall have the whole Kelly place, without any
deed. After her it shall go to her children in equal shares. Lea shall have
$1000 to build. If she should die before she builds or will not build, then
shall the $1000 fall back to my wife, and to Menno, and to Fanny, and to
Lidia in equal shares.

only what I here will to her.
My Executor shall hold that money at 6 pct compound interest,
until she builds.

equal shares. They shall have no use of it so long as we live. They shall
