Nock, orphan of Same referred to in the 2d exception, taken to said account, were allowed: And the Court reserves his decision upon said exceptions No.1 & 2 until after the said evidence is reported. And the Court doth overrule the third exception to said report. And the Court being of opinion that the decedent William Nock Senior as Executor of Zadock Nock, deceased, had not fully ascertained and adjusted the amount of his testator, Zadock Nock's indebtedness to his children John H. Nock, Sallie A. Powell, (formerly Sallie A. Nock) William T. Nock and Mary A. Northam (formerly Mary A. Nock) as their late guardian, doth further adjudge, order and decree, that said Master Commissioner Oldham, as further make up and state an account of the transactions of said Zadock Nock, deceased, with each of his said Wards, and as to the 4th, 5th, & 6th. exceptions to said Master's report, doth reserve his decision until after said Master's report of said accounts shall be made: And the Court doth further adjudge, order and decree that said Master Commissioner make report of his proceedings under this decree to the Court as soon as may be. And all further and other directions are reserved.
