I am in better health now apparently than I have been since 1890 and I now by this will revoke and annul all wills and codicils made by me before this time. I now will to my sister Mrs. O.W. Davis for her life, all that part of my home farm which is now enclosed by fence (800 acres) together with so much of the land as lies north of the river and which is not now enclosed. This life estate is given upon the express conditions that she shall reside upon the land and use it as she is now doing. I also will O.W. Davis all my stock, household goods, etc. I prefer that the two south rooms of my law offices in McMinnville shall not be sold but kept as a convenient stopping place for the family. Miss Florence Davis has lived unmarried and has divided her time and toil to aid and care for her mother, sister and brothers – I give to her $1000.00. Witnessed 20 Jun 1903 by J.F. Morford and J. C.
