Commissioner of Supreme Court - of Nfld. John Haines.
I, Jacob Cable of Foxtrap the Testator named in the above Will make
this statement that the reason I did not give my sons Henry, Azariah and
Frederick any share of my land is, that I am trusting to my son Jacob and
his wife to work my land and to support me. I consider my son Jacob to
be the proper person to have my own shares of my property. Therefore
I have given it to him, my sons Henry Azariah and Frederick mentioned above
did not give me any assistance after they were 21 years old, and
I know that before they were 21 years old they did not do much for me and
I have nothing belonging to them.
In witness whereof I have set my hand and seal at Kelligrews this 5th
day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and nineteen.
Jacob his X mark Cable.
Signed, Sealed and delivered in the presence of [having been first
read over to him] Francis F. Furneaux Commissioner of Supreme Court.
