<br />the attention,he otherwise would in marketing his live stock and in re- stocking his ranche$.
<br />He has no son to help him,now,nor in the future.He has four competent and splendid daughters,,nd
<br />it is their desire,and his hope,and my own as well,to give them college educations,which willj
<br />be very expensive,under his present business condition;and in his present outlook for the j!
<br />future. All my other children have homes,while he has nong,and'I have decided to give him �.
<br />fifteen thousand dollars additional out of my estate,with which to provide himself a home or to
<br />eduoate his daughters.If he uses the $15,000 for a home,I beg him to let this amount be the
<br />maximum price which he invests in a home,so as not to overburden his good wife and daughters
<br />by the care and attention which a larger home would require.I advise him not to move away f'
<br />from grand Island unless his business absolutely demands it.I,therefore,give and bequeath to
<br />my said son,Theodore Reimers,the sum of Fifteen Thousand Dollars,to be paid to him out of my
<br />personal estate.My love for all my children is the same,and I trust and pray that this special
<br />bequest in favor of their brother Theodore,under the circumstances,will be approved by them,
<br />and each of them,for I feel that Theodore needs this extra help,and it makes me very happy
<br />to be able to extend it to him.My son Theodore knows nothing Of the execution of this codicil:.
