§51-6-2. Powers and duties as to securities.
The certificates of stock or other securities in which, under
the orders of the court, such investments may be made, shall be

him, unless otherwise specially ordered; and he shall have the
power to sell, transfer or collect the same, when ordered by the
court to do so, but not otherwise; and in case of his death,
resignation or removal, his successor, or any person specially
appointed by the court for that purpose, shall have like power.
