Page 155




entitled to 5% commission on this amount which is $9.68 and that these amounts added to $52.08 fees (?) reporter commission $9.68 make the sum of $236.00 now on hand & ready for distribution instead of said sum of $52.08, Your reporter also states that he collected from an old Negro named DANIEL HOWARD $21.50 in payment of a note given to reporter for property bought at sale & 2.00 from J.

He would further state that he has used the utmost diligence to collect the open account reported on the inventory as due the estate from one LEWIS JONES that he has failed to get money on said account that JONES is insolvent & has removed out of the Country & that said account is still [in] hands of reporter. In conclusion he would state that voucher[s] from no. 1 to no. 3 include the items of expenditure since filing of his last report that he will support the other items of expenditure either by appropriate vouchers or proper proof on the hearing hereof. The premises considered your applicant asks that the notice required by law begin (?) of the filing of this account that the same be received and confirmed that Commissioners be appointed to distribute & partition the property herein described as belonging to said Estate and for such other and further relief as to the Court may seem proper.

Admr. Report of Commissioners

Est. E. B. HOWARD Collin County Court January Term 1880

Deceased We the undersigned a majority of the Commissioners appointed at the present term of the Court to partition and divide the lands & other property belonging to the estate of E. B. HOWARD decd. among the heirs of said decedent beg leave to submit this as our action in the premises being well acquainted with the said lands described in the copy of the decree that accompanies the writ of partition and having viewed the same were of opinion that said land [s] are not capable of a fair & equal division among the distributees of said estate and we recommend that the same be sold & the proceeds divided among the heirs we have reference only to the land when we say that the property of said estate is incapable of a fair division. The other property of the estate consists in money & is easy to be divided. We think that none of the lands described in the writ of partition directed to us can be divided in an equal & fair manner and in our opinion said lands are worth the sum of two thousand nine hundred & seventy dollars and that this is a fair and just value of the same.
