Description

The old gentleman died his will was read, and like almost every other will, gave as much disappointment as pleasure He was neither so unjust, nor so ungrateful, as to leave his estate from his nephew but he left it to him on such terms as destroyed half the value of the bequest Mr Dashwood had wished for it for the sake of his wife and daughters than for himself or his son but to his son, and his son s son, a child of four years old, it was secured, in such a way, as to leave to himself no power of providing for those who were most dear to him, and who most needed a provision by any charge on the estate, or by any sale of its valuable woods The whole was tied up for the benefit of this child, who, in occasional visits with his father and mother at Norland, had so far gained on the affections of his uncle, by such attractions as are by no means unusual in children of two or three years old an imperfect articulation, an earnest desire of having his own way, many cunning tricks, and a great deal of noise, as to outweigh all the value of all the attention which, for years, he had received from his niece and her daughters He meant not to be unkind, however, and, as a mark of his affection for the three girls, he left them a thousand pounds a piece
