Will of Kenneth Driscoll


Somewhere in France Nov 4th, 1917.

Mr. Howley


I have received word that it is necessary for me to write to you to have my allottement changed to Mrs. Christiana Hicks for I want her to pay on my land & house if you have made any payments for me I would like for you to transfer them to her. All my property belongs to her in my absence. I am making all the property I possess in Clarenville over to her never mind about my next of kin it belongs to her. I was back in Scotland a few months ago and asked for a furlough if the authorities had used a little consideration there wouldn’t have been any need of this trouble. Anyway I don’t guess this war will last for always either. Now sir I trust that you will act on the instructions I have given you in this letter.

And oblige Your obedient servant Kenneth Driscoll. November 4th 1917.
