A Will Made By Pantomime

The Supreme Court of Maine recently, after a six days trial, sustained

the will of Horatio N. Foster, who was deaf and dumb, seventy-six years

old, who could neither read, write, nor use the manual alphabet. The

will, which was made by pantomime, devised 7000 dols. Only one similar

case it is said was ever tried in the United States, and that was in

North Carolina.
