In re Caldwell Louisa Ann deceased
This is the last will and Testament of me Louisa Ann Caldwell of Saint John's in the Island of Newfoundland widow.
Witness my hand at Saint John's aforesaid this ninth day of November A.D. 1898. -Louisa A. Caldwell-
Signed, Published and Declared by the said Testatrix as and for her last will and Testament in the presence of us who at her request in her presence and in the presence of each other [all present at the same time] have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses. [sgd] W.E. Wood Saul J. Ryan

(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor.|
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
