purchase or exchange; {Howard v. Ducane, 1 Turn. & Russ. 81; 2 Sugd. Powers, 517); and, of course, he may on the same principle sell to the trustees. In the case in the text, it is recited, that A. B. gave £700 for the property he sells to the trustees for £593, in order to shew on the face of the conveyance that the transaction is fair, as regards the settled estate.

(a) The power to sell in lots is always given to trustees expressly; but, even in the absence of an express power to that effect, there seems to be nothing to prevent trustees from selling in lots, if they think a sale in that manner will be most advantageous.
