This is the last Will and Testament of me Patrick Myler, of St. John's in the Island of Newfoundland, Messenger. I revoke all former Wills by me at any time made and I appoint my nephew Patrick Myler of St. John's, Cooper the Executor of this my Will. I give and bequeath the leasehold messuage on Chapel Street, where I at present reside, with any furniture of mine therein, to my said nephew Patrick for his own use absolutely. I will and direct that out of any monies which I may leave either in Bank or otherwise my said Executor shall extend the sum of Fifty dollars for masses for the souls of my father and mother and my brother Thomas and fifty dollars for masses for the repose of my own soul. The balance of any monies then remaining I give and bequeath to my brothers William and James in equal shares between them. In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my hand at St. John's aforesaid this seventeenth day of May A.D. 1919. Patrick J. Myler. Signed Published and Declared by the Testator as and for his last Will and Testament in presence of us, both being present at the same time who at his request and in his presence hereunto subscribe our names as witnesses attesting the due execution hereof.

(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.
