    Sir, Hopkinton Novr. 13, 1773
    At the desire of Colo. Jones this is to signify to you, that I was present with the late Colo. Jones decd. at the time of his making, + signing his Last Will, + Testament, that He Dictated to me and I wrote it for him. And from what then passed I am very sure that He design'd that the Land therein bequeath'd to his two Daughters Saltmarsh, and Homes at an estimated price should be consider'd as part of their Legacy of {pounds}50.
    In this I am confirm'd because whereas the Legacies of {pounds}50. to each Daughter was to be paid out of an appropriated fund, when a Doubt was started whether said fund would be sufficient, He Replied that it undoubtedly would because said Legacies at least some of them were in a great measure paid by these very lands + certain notes of hand which He had against them, or their husbands, + made a rough calculate for that purpose. I am with Great Esteem + Respect, Sir, Your most Humd. Servt. Jno. Wilson
