A judgment or decree against any person as the personal
representative of a decedent or committee of a convict or insane
person, for a debt due from such decedent, convict or insane
person, may, without taking an account of the transactions of such
representative or committee, be ordered to be paid out of the
personal estate of such decedent, convict or insane person, in, or
which shall come to, the hands of the representative or committee
to be administered. When the court enters of record that, if he
