HIS LOVE FOR HIS WIFE
[wife, Lewis Morris, Robert Hunter Morris]
Lastly. I name and appoint my good and loving and deservedly well beloved wife Isabella
Morris, and my two sons Lewis Morris and Robert Hunter Morris, and the survivors and
survivor of them, to be the executors and exercutor of this my last will and testament,
hereby revoking and making null and void all former wills and testaments or codicils by me made.
And I recommend to my sons and children to be kind, tender and affectionate to their
mother, she having been always so to them, and not to suffer the infirmities of old age to
abate the respect and regard they ought to pay to her. I heartily recommend to them a love
and affection to each other, and that they will avoid, as much as may be done,
all occasions of difference and distrust amongst themselves. And I humbly pray the good God
may always protect, direct and influence them to act as becomes them.
LEWIS MORRIS. [l.s.]
Signed, sealed and published by Lewis Morris as his last will and testament, and the whole
