An assignee or trustee for the benefit of creditors must file an account with the probate court at the expiration of eight months from his appointment and qualification, and as often thereafter as the court orders. Such account shall contain a full exhibit of all his doings as such, up to the time of filing, together with the amount of all claims remaining uncollected, and the amount thereof which in his opinion may thereafter be collected. Exceptions may be filed to the accounts by parties interested, in the manner provided in cases of accounts of administrators or executors. Such accounts shall be examined and the exceptions thereto heard by the court, in the manner provided for the settlement of the estates of deceased persons. Upon the filing of such accounts, the court shall fix a time for the hearing, and publish notice thereof as in the case of the filing of the account of an executor or administrator.
