NOTE.Formerly, at common law, no compensation was allowed to an executor or administrator for his trouble in settling
an estate. But now, by statute provision or custom, it is believed that a reasonable sum is allowed in all the States. In ordi-
nary cases, that sum is from 2 to 5 per cent., varying according to the magnitude of the estate, and the facility of settling it.
