this instrument which is written by my subscriber with my name to be my
last will and testament revoking all others not owing anything.
dearly beloved Sisters Martha & Catherine Finleyson I give and bequeath
the use and profit and benefit of whole estate real and personal for the
term of their natural lives all real and personal property namely land
notes, money and all perishable property. I constitute and appoint my
beloved Sisters Martha and Catherine Executrix and of this my last will
and testament in the Consideration of which it will be readily perceived
that no performance character has been consulted or has had any agency
in the draft and that although it has occupied May of May lease and I
have showed it-in its present form it may not withstanding appear small
and incorrect but having indevered to be plain and explicit in all the
dealing having of the expense of the property perhaps of tenant-less I
hope and trust that no disposition will arise concerning them but if
among it the call should be otherwise from the sort of legal expression
as the usual bequeath therein or balance too much or too little has been
said already of the delivering to be consented with said My will and
document expressed in that all dispute.
unhampered in any instances should be decided by this my article and
utilized (illegible word)
their Probity and good understanding to be chosen by the disputants each
having the place of me and a third by these to which three men them
chosen shall written by law as legal constituted local this sense of the
testator execution and discussion to all interest and purposes to be
finding on the parties as if it had been given in the Superior Court of
the United States.
of all and each of the things therein attached I have set my hand and
seal this 7th day of October 1909.
