A paper writing, purporting to be the last will and testament of Caroline J.B. Runyon deceased is exhibited for probate in open Court by W.B.

It is therefore considered by the Court, that the said paper writing, and every part thereof, is the last will and testament of the said Caroline J.B. Runyon and the same is ordered to be recorded and filed. And thereupon the said W.B. Gulick, Administrator as aforesaid, duly qualifies as such, by taking the oath required by law.

Provided nevertheless that said Lucy B. Gulick shall have power at any time during her overture to sell and dispose of any portion of said property by instrument in writing and invest the proceeds to the uses and for the purposes herein before designated.
In witness whereof I have here unto at my hand the fourth day of June 1860.
