estate and clan was married and had two Children. The younger also resided on the estate living on a small farm the property of his brother, he to was married and had six sons, all grown up. It appears that the brother who possessed the small farm and large family wished to possess more, in fact he could not understand why he ought not to possess the estate as well.
