Σελίδα 176 - A charity, in the legal sense, may be more fully defined as a gift, to be applied consistently with existing laws, for the benefit of an indefinite number of persons, either by bringing their minds or hearts under the influence of education or religion, by relieving their bodies from disease, suffering, or constraint, by assisting them to establish themselves in life, or by erecting or maintaining public buildings or works, or otherwise lessening the burdens of government.
Σελίδα 159 - Future estates are either vested or contingent. They are vested when there is a person in being who would have an immediate right to the possession of the lands upon the ceasing of the intermediate or precedent estate. They are contingent while the person to whom, or the event upon which, they are limited to take effect, remains uncertain.
Σελίδα 40 - ... by the burning, tearing, or otherwise destroying the same by the testator, or by some person in his presence and by his direction, with the intention of revoking the same.
Σελίδα 154 - ... a contingent remainder in fee may be created on a prior remainder in fee, to take effect in the event that the persons to whom the first remainder is limited, die under the age of twenty-one years, or on any other contingency by which the estate of such persons may be determined before they attain full age. For the purposes of this section, a minority is deemed a part of a life, and not an absolute term equal to the possible duration of such minority.

Σελίδα 394 - Know all men by these presents, that I, Henry Strominger, of the township of Xewberry, in the count}' of York, and State of Pennsylvania, yeoman, being in good health and of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and publish this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me at any time heretofore made.
Σελίδα 71 - ... nephews' ; but In legal language the question whether a gift Is one to a class depends, not upon these considerations, but upon the mode of gift Itself, namely, that It is a gift of an aggregate sum to a body of persons uncertain in number at the time of the gift, to be ascertained at a future time, and who are all to take in equal or in some other definite proportions ; the share of each being dependent for its amount upon the ultimate number of persons.
Σελίδα 98 - When any estate is devised or bequeathed to any child, or other relation of the testator, and the devisee or legatee dies before the testator, leaving lineal descendants, such descendants take the estate so given by the will, in the same manner as the devisee or legatee would have done had he survived the testator.
Σελίδα 387 - Testator, as and for his last will and testament in the presence of us, who at his request, in his presence and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names as Witnesses thereto.
Σελίδα 296 - Know all men by these presents, that I, Hattie C. Ruddell, of the county of Beaufort and state of South Carolina, being in ill health but of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and publish this, my last will and testament...
