    In the name of God, Amen. This 12th day of April 1740, I, James Foster, being sick and weak of body, though in perfect mind and memory, and calling to mind that it is appointed for all men once to die, do make and appoint this to be my last will and testament.

    First I recommend my soul unto the hands of Almighty God, who gave it, and next I commit my body to the earth, from whence it was taken, to be buried according to the discretion of my executrix; and as for such worldly goods as God hath been pleased to endow me with, I dispose of in manner and form following.

    And first I will that all my just debts be paid, I do also appoint my beloved wife Elizabeth to be sole executrix of this my last will and testament.

    I give unto my wife this plantation that is to say the use and profits thereof until my son James shall arrive at the age of twenty one years and then to him, his heirs and assigns forever.

    2nd I give and bequeath unto my daughtter Mary five shillings.

    3rdly I give unto my two daughters Susannah and Rebeccah their equal portion according to law. That is in consideration that my wife do keep and educate my children that I do allow her the use of plantation.

    In testimony whereof I do hereunto set my hand and seal the day and year first above written.

    James Foster
