Whereupon the court order that a jury be impannelled who upon their oaths shall try the issue of fact and say whether the said paper writing or the substance thereof is or is not the nuncupative will of the said Frederick dec'd executed in due form of law. To try which issue came the following Jury of good and lawful men To wit [jury names].do say that the said paper writing or memorandum is the nuncupative will of the said Frederick dec'd. that it was executed in due form of law during his last illness at his own residence and the same was reduced to writing within ten days after the death of the said Frederick decd. and that more than fourteen days have elapsed since his decease.
