41. estate together with such other property as is hereby bequeathed

I think the first word on line 41 is Plate again - i.e. all the plate not specifically willed to his nephew. (If it were "residue of my estate", there would surely be no "such other property" left over for it to go together with!)

Ah thank you mgf, 'Plate' is correct.

I am so accustomed to seeing the phrase 'residue of my estate' that I carelessly
typed 'estate' without reading the line properly.  :-[
