To this I declare is true. I declare that nothing is owned me nor do I owe anything.

I declare that my goods consist of one land and house situated below the river (probably below New Orleans on the river), with 6 negroes and some animals.

I name for tutor and curator of my 3 grandchildren of the deceased Charles Cavallier and my daughter Marie to jean Vinet to who I relieve all security for their actions.

I name in my last will and testament, the keeper of my goods, my brother-in-law Jean Denesse and I give him the year of this execturship to complete my mandate in this will, giving him administrative power to make the sale and division of myh goods among my heirs without intervention of the courts, for this is my wish.

In this city of New Orleans, 5 July 1801, I (Narcisse Brotin) know that the author (Francois Martin is seemingly in good judgement.
