Preamble.     WHEREAS doubts are entertained as to the construction and operation

in case the eldest male shall not be of age to make his election,
agreeable to the provisions of the said act, it shall and may be 
lawful for the eldest female, if of age, to elect to take the land at
the valuation of the commissioners, notwithstanding the existence
of any male minor, any thing in the act to which this is a supplement
to the contrary notwithstanding.
