This is the last Will and Testament of me, Olivia Emma Winsor, widow of William Winsor late of Wesleyville, Bonavista Bay, General merchant. I revoke all wills heretofore by me made. I appoint I.J. Mifflen, of Greenspond, one of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace, to be the sole Executor, of this my last will and testament.
In witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my hand at Wesleyville, in the Island of Newfoundland, this sixth day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and sixteen. Olivia Emma Winsor. Signed published and declared by the Testator as and for her last will and testament in the presence of us, who in her presence and in the presence of each other at her request have hereunto subscribed our hands as witnesses. Alexander Tucker of Greenspond Constable. I.J. Mifflen of Greenspond Magistrate.

(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.
