with a white back. I also will unto my son William my desk and book case, and unto my son John I bequeath my cupboard. 
The balance of my property after paying all my just debts and reserving a sufficiency to have me decently intered, 
I will to my five daughters Polly, Martha, Cintha, Jane & Elizabeth to be equally divided between them,

seal in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred & fourty one. January 18th.
