What is CONFIDENCE

Trust; reliance; ground of trust In the construction of wills, this word is considered peculiarly appropriate to create a trust. “It is as applicable to the subject of a trust, as nearly a synonym, as the English language is capable of. Trust is a confidence which one man reposes in another, and confidence is a trust.” Appeal of Coates, 2 Pa. 133.
