Sweeny, being of sound and disposing mind and memory and being desirous of
making disposition of my worldly goods in such manner as seems to me to be just
and proper hereby make and publish this, my last will and testament, hereby
revoking all wills by me heretofore made.
Item One. After my death it is my desire that my mortal
remains be given a decent interment, fitting to one in my station of life, and
that all expense of my last illness and interment be paid as well as all other
just debts and obligations which may be owing by me.
Item Two. My good friend James Shaw having been of much help
to me throughout my recent years and with the promise from him that he will
continue so to be during the remainder of my earthly existence; that he will
assist me in caring for my property, securing tenants for the same if the same
be vacant, and otherwise acting in the place and stead of a dutiful son to me I
will and bequeath to him all the property, real and personal, of which I may
die seized after the payment of the items mentioned in Item first hereof.
Item Three. I hereby appoint my said friend James Shaw as
executor of this will and testament.
