I declare this my last will and testament that I will and bequeath to my beloved son my gold watch for him to wear it is self and no (won?) also and never to part with it nor alter a letter that is on the watch.  I also (...)will and bequeath to him what ever money I may have in the bank but for (..) my funeral expenses to be paid out of it Tho and for my ungrateful sister I (....) her out of my will with won shilling and I will and bequeath to my beloved mistress everything I may be possessed of of wearing apparel.
