      And as touching such worldly goods wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in this world, I do by these presents give and bequeath to my beloved wife Jane Penny Garland my dwelling house and effects within and without situate at 96 Barnes Road (North Side) in the City of St. John’s Newfoundland aforesaid. My wife Jane Penny Garland shall have no power to dispose of or transfer the above named dwelling house and effects to any person or persons during her lifetime.

The proceeds of such hire or sale to be given to my wife Jane Penny Garland, if unmarried and if married to be equally divided amongst my four children above named, my will to be opened six days after my burial and a copy of the same given to my beloved wife Jane Penny Garland.

      And I do by these presents utterly revoke and disannul all and every other Will and Testaments by me in any way made confirming this and none other to be my last Will and Testament.
