In the name of God, Amen. I, James Stevenson, of Albany, being sick. I leave to my daughter Sara, wife of Col. Gabriel Christie, a Negro wench, “Dian,” in full of her part, she having already received her portion. I leave to my son James £2,000, to be paid in six months. All the rest of my estate, real and personal, I leave to my eldest son John, and make him executor.
