I, Harry Walker of Gallatin, Tennessee being of sound mind and having a full and knowledge of all my business and also that to a man of age, death may come at any time, do make and publish this my last Will and Testament and I hereby revoke all other wills by me heretofore made.

Item 1st. I direct that all of my debts including my funeral expenses be paid as soon after my death as can be done.

Item 2nd. I direct that after the payment of the funeral expenses and such other debts as I may owe at the time of my death that all of the remainder of my property be paid over to my friend and companion Henry Smith for his own use and benefit. I do this in recognition of the faithful services rendered to me by said Henry Smith for many years past, and especially since the death of my wife. The said Henry Smith has had the whole charge of me in my bereaved and feeble condition, and treated me with all the kindness of a son, and for these services I make him my sole legatee. This the 4th day of June 1903. Harry (his mark) Walker
