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.
