Fifth, I give and bequeath unto the daughters of my brother Phillip my small silver spoons to be divided equally among them, there being six only.

Sixth, I give and bequeath the remaining part of my estate whatsoever and whensoever of what nature and kind and quality the same may lie and not be hereinbefore given and disposed of (after payment of debts, legacies and expenses) to be divided equally among all my brothers and sisters who survive me except my sister Hriah [? I cannot read this name.]

And I hereby constitute and appoint my brother Thomas Schuyler sole executor for this my last will and testament.
