E. E. WM. KILTY, Solicitor for J. A. Frazier.

Explanation of the above account. The charge No. 1 arises from the will of
Alexander Frazier, senior, leaving John A. Frazier the half of his estate; and the
amount estimated from the testimony in the cause, particularly that of John Frazier.
The charge No. 2 is deduced from the testimony respecting the sale of the timber,
that not being considered as a part of the usual profits of the land. The charge No
3 arises from the will of Alexander Frazier, senior, directing his son John A. Fra-
zier to be educated out of Alexander Frazier's part of the estate, and the time during
which his education was neglected is stated to be eight years, from the testimony
which proves that he was educated about three years. The credit No. 1 is fixed at
eight years, as it appears that John A. Frazier was boarded out about three years,
which expense fell on Alexander Frazier as a part of his education. The credit
No. 2 is given on an estimate formed from the testimony as to the manner in which
John A. Frazier was clothed.'

After which, the case was brought before the court for further directions.

18th May, 1797.—HANSON, Chancellor,—Ordered, that the auditor state the claims
of James Pattison against the said Alexander Frazier agreeably to the established
principles of this court, and his own ideas, first giving notice to the defendant, or
his solicitor, and to William Kilty, Esquire; and that having stated the said account
he return it to this court, subject to be done with as to the Chancellor shall seem

In obedience to this order, the auditor reported, that from the exhibits filed by
James Pattison, he had stated an account marked No 1, on which there was due
£3,992 2s. 7d. including interest to the 12th of April, 1796, the day on which the
land was sold. That from the books of James Pattison, he had stated account No.
2, wherein the defendant was charged with what he actually appeared to have re-
ceived, without paying any regard to the settlement made by the parties, and the
bond given by the defendant. The balance in this account is only £2,379 19s. 8d
