If the widow or executor of a testator refuses to deliver to the legatee of a tenement the deeds relating to that property, the legatee may obtain a writ from the king to initiate an action demanding the deeds be handed over. It will have to be proven that the deeds in question were in the possession of widow or executor after the testator's decease. When such a deed is displayed in the city court, the claimant is to be examined as to whether he has legitimate children. If he has, then the deed may be delivered to him; if not, the deed is to be placed in the common chest of the city until the legatee has legitimate offspring.

[The chapter evidently relates to the circumstances of cap. 20 and 21, in which property bequeathed to a legatee who dies without heirs shall be sold by the city officials.]
