And has paid out for EMMA the sum of one hundred & nine dollars & eight cnts. And for JAMES STINNETT the sum of one hundred & nine dollars and eight cents.

Your respondent would show to the Court that the family of children thought it was best & cheapest to live together as one family and all bear equally the expense of what it cost by provisions and the other necessary expenses of living.

That this course would be cheaper and less expensive than to board out. And in fact the children my wards above named refused to break up and to board out. Wherefore I kept them together by their consent and approbation.

Nearly two years ago the house we lived in was burned down and I fixed up an old store in the town of Mautua at no great expense and lived in that with my wards all of which said expense they were willing to bear in equal proportion rather than be separated.

Paid out for clothing for SUE E. STINNETT for clothing the sum of $73.57. And for taxes on her land for the years 1880 & 1881 the sum of twelve dollars and four cents as per tax receipt therewith filed marked Exhibit 1. And this respondent charges himself with $40 as rent received from the land of his ward SUE E. STINNET for the year 1880 and also for and on account of rent received for said ward for the year 1881 $35.00 Dollars.

That they are his sisters & brother and that he has done the best that he could for them. That he has made no charge against them for anything that he has heretofore done for them in the management of their estate and that he has reported everything accurately strictly. Each and every one of this wards fully understanding his acts and approving the same.
