In response to A funny will (really!), written by The Mysterious H.C. on March 20, 1998 at 19:20:47
William F. Macy's notes:
]"This manuscript will was found in an old sea-chest in a house in Siasconset some years ago. The will was never presented in court for probate, because the turn of events made it unnecessary. The Nancy Rotch returned and was sold for a good price. Belindy's husband was drowned by the upsetting of his dory on Miacomet Rip. Ezra returned from China, prosperous and anxious to make amends for past shortcomings, and no one was more delighted to see him than Cap'n Obed. When the latter died, it was at Ezra's suggestion that the whole estate was given to the widow during her lifetime. After her death, at the age of 92, it was divided among the children, but Ezry gave his "lay" to Belindy's oldest boy, who had been named after him."
I no Captain Obed would have been so proud of Ezry. Everything worked out.
