(c) In another lot of ground situate in the same parish, same Township, and Second Range, being formerly lot number ten of said range, containing about two hundred acres in superficies, and joining on the South West side the land of John Payne, as representing John Miller, which lot I bought from Bartholomew Mooney, to have and to hold the vue property of the same from the day of my death and the usufruct only from the day of the death of my wife, Marguerite Woodlock, who will enjoy also the same during her life time, without being bound of making any inventory & giving any security.

On this day, the thirteenth of December one thousand eight hundred and eighty one, before us the undersigned Notaries Public for the Province of Quebec residing at the City of Quebec, personally came and appeared Mrs. Janet Mather, wife of Mr. John Knox, farmer, of the Parish of St. Gabriel of Valcartier, who being in good bodily health and of sound and perfect mind, memory and understanding requested us the said Notaries to write down and receive in due form of law her last will and testament which she instantly dictated and named unto us the said Notaries as follows, to wit:

I give and bequeath unto my beloved husband John Knox all the property real and personal, moveable and immoveable without any exception nor reserve whatsoever which I may be possessed of at the time of my death, to have and to hold the same unto him in full and absolute property, hereby appointing him my sole universal legatee.
