be done them, that an account may be had, that the said land may
be sold; and under the direction of this court, the proceeds thereof
applied to the payment of their annuity, with costs of suit; and
the balance so invested as to stand an answerable fund to meet
future instalments of said annuity; or that such other relief may
be given to them as to the court may seem meet; and to the end

grant subpoenas, &c.

6th October, 1826.—BLAND, Chancellor.—The defendants Wil-

having been returned summoned, and not having appeared, or filed
their answers within the time allowed by the rules of the court, it

execution and return of which, the commissioners said that the

or any of the defendants, making no distinction in favour of infant, the court must
enter an interlocutory decree, &c, 1820, ch. 161, s, 1,—(6) 1820, ch, 161, s. 5.
