After the payment of all my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give, devise and bequeath all the property of every description of which I may die possessed, save and except the bequest hereinafter contained, to my wife Elizabeth Trainor. I give to my executor hereinafter named the sum of two hundred and fifty dollars to be applied by her in the celebration of Masses for the repose of my soul. I appoint the said Elizabeth Trainor Executrix of this my will. St. John's, June 8th, 1916. Thomas Trainor. Signed, published and declared by the said Testator as and for his last will and testament in our presence who in his presence at his request and in the presence of each other, have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses.

(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.
