[missing figure]

I am requested to state what I know about
the execution, of a Bill of sale or paper purporting,
to be signed by JosiahJosiah Ramsay Sr ,RamsayJosiah Ramsay Sr and which is dated
27th of August 1807 and which I have this day
examined in the clerk's office of Circuit CourtCircuit Court
of St. LouisSt Louis county where I found the same
attached to depositions, of David BrownDavid Brown &
Presley, Gray entitled, in the cause of DelphDelph
or, Dorris - that paper purports, to have
been executed by JosiahJosiah Ramsay Sr ,RamsayJosiah Ramsay Sr in 1807
and I never saw him write before about seven
or eight years ago when he had
in his fingers and indeed, was able to
a pen - so that although I incline, to think that
signature at the bottom of sd, paper was made
by him I wish it to be understood what
my means of forming, an opinion - I never
saw any of his writing except his signature
and whether he could write any more, than
that I do not know - my opinion above expressed, is founded on some small similarity of,
the character of this signature and those, which
I have seen him make - he was a farmer St LouisSt Louis4th of april 1837
