I, Luke WELCH, farmer, residing in Charleston, near Port Alfred, Albany, do (in consequence of my being led into expenses which my means cannot afford) hereby invest my wife Mary WELCH with full power and authority over all and every species of property of which I am now possessed. And I give her full power to call in all lawful debts now due to me; also to pay all lawful debts which I now owe. And I hereby renounce all right of control over my property during the [obscured] of my said wife, and leave the management of it entirely to her, upon condition that she forthwith pay all that I owe.

10th December 1834
DIED at Glen Craig on Wednesday the 3rd inst, Mrs. E.H. PHILIPPS, wife of Thomas PHILIPPS Esq, Justice of the Peace for the Albany District. The deceased was greatly beloved, not only of her domestic circle, but by all who knew her; and although her general deportment bore ample testimony to her unaffected piety, yet it was more conspicuously manifest in a peaceful and happy death. Her illness, which terminated so fatally, was of but few days continuance, and when drawing to a close, she contemplated her approaching departure with the faith and hope of the Christian: of one who can confidently exclaim “henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which shall never fade!”
DIED at Port Elizabeth on the 7th inst, Mr. E. WALLACE, Harbour Master at that Port, at the early age of 42 years.
Thursday 18 December 1834
