Scope and content
36 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, W.C. - Sends a copy of her new will [no longer present], drawn in accordance with her instructions as received through Sir George. It varies from her old will and codicil in only two respects: instead of a legacy of forty thousand pounds, her son Robert now 'shares the residue with her two brothers'; the executors are now her sons instead of her 'late father's trustees'. As she understands, this new will 'deals only with the property coming from your late father'; for all other property she may have at her death, there will 'be an intestacy'.
Asks her to read through and return it with any remarks if alterations are needed; if it is all right, asks if she would prefer to bring it to him to execute, or whether she would prefer him to come to her. Gives possible times he could come to her.
Also separate sheet in Robert's hand with notes on the disposition of the 'Residuary Estate', with figures under his and his brothers' initials.
