Item, I give and bequeath unto my grandson Adrian Brinkerhoff the sum of Five pounds current money of New York, to be paid by my Executors within six months after the decease of my wife Jannetje Brinkerhoff which shall be in full bar of any claim or demand which he may or can have against my estate as heirat- law.

Imprimis, I most humbly bequeath my soul to God my maker, beseeching his most gracious acceptance of it through the all sufficient merits of my most compassionate Redeemer, Jesus Christ, who gave himself to be an atonement for my sins and is able to save to the uttermost all that come unto God by him, seeing he liveth to make intercession for them, and who, I trust, will not reject me, a returning penitent sinner, when I come to him for mercy. In this hope and confidence I render up my soul with humble beseeching the most blessed and glorious Trinity— one God most holy, most merciful and gracious—to prepare me for the time of my dissolution, and then to take me to himself unto that peace and rest and incomparable felicity which he has prepared for all that love and fear his holy name. Amen ; blessed be God. Imprimis : I give my body to the earth from whence it was taken, in full assurance of its resurrection from thence at the last day ; as for my burial, I desire it may be decent, at the discretion of my Executors hereafter named, who, I doubt not will manage it with all requisite prudence. As to my worldly wealth, I will and positively order that all my debts and funeral charges be paid and discharged by my Executors hereinafter named.

Imprimis : I give my soul to God who gave it me, in full assurance of his gracious acceptance, through the merits of my most compassionate Saviour, Jesus Christ. As for my worldly wealth wherewith it has pleased God to bless me, it is my will and I do positively order that my just debts and funeral charges be paid by my Executors as soon as convenient after my death out of my estate.

Secondly, It is my will and I do order that after the remarriage or decease of my wife Johannah, all my estate, real and personal, be sold by my Executors, and the monies arising from said sale be distributed in manner following, that is to say : I give, devise and bequeath unto my daughter Titia Two hundred and fifty dollars, before any division is made of the aforesaid monies.
Thirdly, I do give, devise and bequeath the remainder of the monies as aforesaid unto my seven children, Sarah, Titia, Catherine, Coert, Henry, Johanna, and Elsie, to be divided between them, share and share alike ; and in case either of my said children should die leaving issue, that my grandchild or grandchildren shall come in and be entitled to the share of their father or mother, as the case may be.

Van Beuren, to be the sole Executors of this my last Will and Testament ratifying, confirming and declaring this and no other to be my last Will and Testament. In witness whereof, I have set my hand and seal this fourth day of July, in the year of our Lord One thousand eight hundred and four.
