Mr White one of the Generals Executors in a letter of the 8th instant at Berkley informs me, that he had not then been able to get the will proved, but he had written to the E[xecutors] in the most urgent manner to attend at the next Court for that purpose—Whenever that is done, I will obtain an authenticated Copy of the Gens.
