In re Ernest Pollett Ward       deceased

Statement I the undersigned hereby declare that in case of my death [through mishap or unforeseen circumstances attending the operation to be performed on me on Friday, August 8th/19] I do appoint my wife Hattie to administer my affairs & that after my loan [with the details of whichs (?) she quite familiar] has been repaid & all other bills paid & liabilities met, she is to receive everything remaining including insurance & all other things of value that belonged to me. It is my request however that my large dictionary go to my sister Constance in England & any other little momento which my wife sees fit & suitable to send my mother & sister. Further when Campbell my eldest child becomes of suitable age to care for it he is to have my watch, other things are left entirely to the discretion of my dear wife. I am entirely resigned to the Will of God my Heavenly father & he will provide for my dear ones. E. Pollett Ward. General Hospital Augst 7th 1919.

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.
