Стр. 294 - That we must stand unpropped, or be laid low. O dastard whom such foretaste doth not cheer!

Стр. 286 - I direct that they, my said trustees and the survivor of them, and the executors and administrators of such survivor...
Стр. 289 - Signed, sealed, published and declared by the said Testator as and for his last Will and Testament, in the presence of us, who in his presence, at his request, and in the presence of each other, have subscribed our names as witnesses...
