perty shall be made, and bond, in the name of the state of Maryland, with good and sufficient secu-
rity, to be approved of by him, shall be given by the person or persons empowered to sell the lands
under the decree aforesaid, for the due execution of the trust, which bond shall be deposited with
the register of the court of chancery, to be by him recorded, and shall be subject to be put in suit
by any person or persons interested.

IV. AND BE IT ENACTED, That the trustee or trustees to be appointed by the decree aforesaid,

Young, deceased, under the direction of the chancellor, and shall pay over the money arising from
the sale of the tracts of lands aforesaid in such manner as the chancellor shall or may direct.

V. AND BE IT ENACTED, That any conveyance or deed made by the trustee or trustees aforesaid,
under the decree of the chancellor as aforesaid, shall be, and the same is hereby declared to be, valid
and effectual to pass and convey all the right, title and interest, of the said minors, in and to the
