Will of John W. Harris
In the name of God Amen The 29th day
of April one thousand nine hundred and five. I, John W Harris of
Seal Cove Newfoundland, Fisherman being sick and weak of body, but of perfect
mind and memory thanks be given unto God therefore calling unto mind the mortality

ordain this my last will and testament; that is to say, principally and first
of all. I give and recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God that gave
it and my body I recommend to the earth, to be buried in decent Christian burial,
at the discretion of my executors; nothing doubting, but at the general resurrection
I shall receive the same again by the almighty power of God. And as touching
such worldly estate wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in this life
I give, demise and dispose of the same in the following manner and form:-
(Listed in the margin next to this will the following)
