In consequence of the reckless course and dissipated habits pursued by my son William C. Bobbitt, I will that the portion bequeathed to him in said will be retained and held by my executor and managed by him to the best advantage until my said son shall evidence sufficient reformation as shall convince my executor of his determination to do better than he has heretofore done, but should he not evidence such reformation as will gain the confidence of my executor then his portion as aforesaid shall be equally divided between my children by my last wife.
