 In probate court of Austin County August Term thereof AS 1861.

 To the Hon G W Johnson Chief Justice of said County--The petition of H G W Cloud a citizen of Austin County and one of the heirs of the estate of Jeremiah Cloud Seinor decd complaining of the adminr admx of said estate respectfully Showeth unto your Honor that the inventory and appraisement of the property belonging to said estate returned by said Admr and admx returned at this Term of the Court filed August 24th AD 1861 is manifestly unjust and erroneous and as special objections to said inventory and appraisement he states the following.

 1st  Certain property belonging to said estate has not been embraced in the inventory.

 2nd  The inventory gives all the property of said estate as community property - whereas certain of the property was the seperate property of the deceased and should have been returned in the inventory and appraisement as seperate property.

 3rd  A part of the property returned in the inventory is not correctly and fairly appraised in the appraisement returned.  The premises considered your petitioner prays that the admn F M Cloud and the admx Elizabeth Cloud, be cited to appear at the next regular term of your Honorable Court to shew cause why a new appraisement should not be made if any they can.  And after hearing your petitioners prays that a new appraisement may be ordered as the law requires and as in duty bound --?--.

Estate of Jeremiah Cloud deceased,
 In county court Austin County Texas, October Term AD 1861.  H G W Cloud deceased comes & excepts to the petition of the administrators for a sale of seperate property of the estate of Jeremiah Cloud deceased to pay the allowance of $300 to the widow upon the following grounds.

 1st  The only property returned upon the inventory as seperate property of the estate of Jeremiah Cloud is negro property.

 2nd  Because the perishable property belonging to said estate is amply sufficient to raise the amount specified & the forced sale of perishable property is always at a less sacrifice than negroes or land.

 3rd  Because there is in the hands of the administrators the proceeds of the last years crop of cotton & has been in the use of the widow the provisions & supplies on hand and stock of cattle & hogs used at the death of Jeremiah Cloud unaccounted for by the administrators which together it is alleged amounts to as much as the allowance made for the years support to the widow.
