  1. Well from what i read this is what i have,

    Father William was explaining that he had gotten stronger in his youth “I took to the law, and argued each case with my wife,” he then explained that’s what made his jaw strong and still useable when old. He also explained that he “kept all of his limbs very supple by the use of this ointment” which is what kept his flexible with stronger muscle. Along with that he stated that that he had no brain so it was fine that he would “incessantly stand on your (in this case it would be his) head.” So in conclusion, if you take care of yourself you’ll be better when you’re older.

  5. That's not the full title, but … oh, well.

    Read it aloud and find two places where sentences end and periods are needed. There's also a place where a comma is needed.

    The content is fine.
