3. AND BE IT ENACTED, That if any of the children of

An act for the benefit of Margaret Ann Boon, daughter of
John Boon of Caroline County, and William Betts of Queen
Ann's County.
WHEREAS, It is represented to this General Assembly by
the petition of John Boone of Caroline county, (who is the
father and natural guardian of Margaret Ann Boon,) and Wil-
liam Betts, (son of Samuel Betts and Ann his wife late of
Queen Ann's county deceased,) through and by his guardian
Elizabeth Betts, that they the said Margaret Ann Boon and
William Belts are heirs at law, to an undivided part of three
tracts or parcels of land lying and being in Caroline county,
called and known by the names of Dudley's Chance, Climer's
Chance and Tabitha's Fortune, that the land is poor and un-
productive, that it descended to them from their grand father,
Richard Mason late of Caroline county, who died intestate be-
fore the law to direct descents took place, in consequence of
which they cannot obtain a division under that law, and that
the passing of a law authorising the sale of the same, would
greatly promote the interest of the heirs, and the prayer of the
petioners appearing reasonable, Therefore,
Sec. 1. BE IT ENACTED by the General Assembly of
Maryland, That John Boon be, and he is hereby authorised
and empowered to sell and dispose of all the real estate that
descended to her the said Margaret Ann Boon, by the death of
her mother Margaret Ann Boon, it being a part of several
tracts or parcels of land lying and being in Carolina county,
called Dudley's Chance, Climer's Chance, and Tabitha's For-
tue; as also all that part of the same tracts or parcels of land situ-
ated as aforesaid, which descended to William Betts, son of
Samuel Betts, of Queen Ann's county.
2. AND BEIT ENACTED, That the said John Boon as
trustee in the above cases, shall give a bond in the name of the
State of Maryland, in such penalty, and with such security as
the orphan's court of Caroline county may approve, for the due
execution of his trust; which bond shall be deposited with the
register of wills for Caroline county, to be by him recorded
among the proceedings of the orphan's court of said county,
upon which bond or any office copy thereof suit or salts may
be instituted by any person or persons interested therein.
