GREEN, each of whom, the said THOMAS J. & PARTHENIA C. are entitled to a distributive share of the estate of SOLOMON GREEN, dec'd, Testator of the said JOHN H.

GREEN; and whereas in the event of a recovery being effected against the said JOHN H.

GREEN in his own right and as assignee of THOMAS J. GREEN and also as Executor of PARTHENIA C. GREEN and the other distributees of the said SOLOMON, which division has been made under a decree of the County Court of Warren, will be sufficient to satisfy and recovery. Now in case recovery shall be effected in said suit against the the Estate of said SOLOMON, or in case any other suit which hereafter may be brought against the Estate of said SOLOMON by the heirs at Law of WILLIAM GREEN deceased or any of them, or by any person or persons claiming under them or any of them, or by any person or persons claiming under the said WILLIAM GREEN, a recovery shall be made in any such suit or suits , and it shall appear that the said JOHN H. GREEN, after said division and surrender of the said Slaves according to the said decree of Warren County Court, had not assets belonging to said Testator's Estate sufficient to satisfy such recoveries, and the above bounden, NATHANIEL T. GREEN shall well and truly pay his rateable proportion and also the rateable proportion of THOMAS JEFFERSON GREEN, and also the rateable proportion of his Testatrix PARTHENIA C. GREEN towards the satisfaction of such recover or recoveries or so much thereof as may remain unsatisfied after deducting therefrom the assets in the hands of the said JOHN H. GREEN (if any). Then this obligation shall be void, otherwise remain in full force.
In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands and affixed our seals this 26th day of October 1835.
