portion securely placed at interest or invested in stores, producing an income, favorably located in this city, by my executors, until they are twenty-one years old, when possession may be given them.

I nominate and appoint "Stewart Wilkins Fisk" and Hon. Charles Watts as executors to this my last will and testament, jointly and severally, giving them seizin and detainer of my estate, and appointing them until my estate is fully liquidated and settled.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name to this my olographic testament, this twenty-seventh day of November, one thousand eight hundred and forty-three, in the city of New Orleans.

(Signed) ABIJAH FISK.
I recommend my executors to employ Joseph H. Lyon, as clerk in settling up my estate, who is well acquainted with the location of all my property, and with debtors. I estimate my estate at $300,000 at least, and should recommend the division of my real estate among the four children of my brother Alvarez, which I have named in my will, in preference to selling--the money could not be better invested if the real estate be sold.
(Signed) ABIJAH FISK.
I certify this to be a true copy of the "copy" of the will handed me by Alvarez Fisk, Esq.
New Orleans, May 24, 1853.
(Signed) WM. MONAGHAN,
Notary Public.
