The precedent in the text, in spite of its length, is very nearly of the —simplest simplest description; for, with the exception of the partial provision for the 'orm father and mother of the intended husband, it provides only for the husband and wife and the children of the marriage. It provides an annuity by way of pin-money for the wife during the joint lives of herself and her husband, and a jointure for her, if she survive the husband. It limits only one life estate—that of the husband—and one estate tail, viz. an estate in tail male for the first son of the marriage. Portions are provided for the younger children, and the husband is enabled to provide for a future wife and children should he survive his present wife and marry again. The other powers and clauses relate to the management and disposition of the estate.
