Will of Ebenezer Thompson
This is the last will and testament
of me, Ebenezer Thompson of Hermitage Cove in the Electoral
District of Fortune in the Island of Newfoundland, Physician. I
revoke all former wills by me at any time made, and I appoint Donald

to my said executor my land and house at Hermitage Cove aforesaid upon trust
to permit George Aquila Hunt Ball, son of my deceased friend George
Rencontre, to occupy the same and enjoy the rents, issues and profits thereof
until the said George Aquila Hunt Ball attains the age of twenty-one years,
provided that the said George Aquila Hunt Ball shall keep the said land and
the buildings thereon in good condition and repair, but otherwise, and in any
case upon the said George Aquila Hunt Ball attaining the said age of twenty-one
years, upon trust for my grandchild Winifred Pike, and to be conveyed to her
