"I, WILLIAM MURDOCH, of the city of London, Merchant , considering the great uncertainty of life?dispose of my worldly affairs as justice, gratitude and friendship dictate".

"And it would have gratified me greatly if I could have done more than ten times as much
    for them all, but my circumstances are limited considering the great number of relations who have claims on me and above all the high and very strong claim on me on the part of the children and grandchildren of my eldest and deceased brother George Murdoch to whom
    I was greatly indebted for nearly all I now possess and under this conviction, as well as in consideration of the great affection I always had for him, I feel it a duty to do all I can for his family. After the deaths of my parents and during my infancy, his tender care of me and his friendly interest in my favor to the end of his life left a lasting impression of gratitude on my mind which I shall always remember and be paying but shall never lessen" my clerk, Thomas Allen. my clerk, John Short. my faithful servants, William Hiam and Elizabeth, his wife. my faithful servant, Elizabeth Franklin. Executors: Richard Potts, the younger <junior> and Doctor William Bradley Tyler both of Frederick Town State of Maryland United States of America and William Barksdale and Boyd Miller of London, Merchants.
