A mother needs to know these things -- especially when composing her will.
Know that we have divided
In three our kingdom: and 'tis our fast [first] intent
To shake all cares and business from our age [of our state];
Conferring [confirming] them on younger strengths [years], while we
Unburden'd crawl toward death. Our son of IDaho,
And you, our no less loving son of San Diego,
We have this hour a constant will to publish
Our daughters' several dowers, that future strife
May be prevented now. The several princes, Texas, Penn, and Sussex,
Great rivals in our youngest daughter's love,
Long in our court have made their spinny sojourn,
And here are to be answer'd. Tell me, my daughters,--
Since now we will divest us both of rule,
Interest of territory, cares of state,--
Which of you shall we say doth love their Mother most,
That we our largest bounty may extend
Where nature doth with merit challenge?
Smells like trouble a brewin', you ask me...
