Cumulative and substitutional legacies and devises

Where a will makes two gifts of unequal amounts to the same person, they are assumed, in the absence of a contrary indication, to be cumulative. Where a will makes two gifts of equal amount to the same person, the presumption is that the second was in substitution for the first, unless evidence to the contrary is shown. If two clauses of a will are irreconcilable, so that they cannot stand together, the last shall prevail.  Obvious clerical errors can be corrected.
