Legacies have been of the most important use in carrying on the educationa operations of the Presbyterian Church. The total amount received from this source for the last twenty-six years has been $47,758 75. Without this aid, there would have been a deficiency in the income of several years.

If any persons wish to leave legacies, either to assist candidates for the ministry or educational institutions, they are requested to insert the right corporate name of the Board.

FORM OF A DEVISE OR BEQUEST. All that the Board deem it necessary to furnish, is their corPORATE NAME, viz., 4 The Trustees of the Board of Education of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America."

The State laws differ so much that no one form will answer in all the States.

The following form may be used in Pennsylvania, and in some of the other States :

“I give and devise to the Trustees of the Board of Education of the Presby. terian Church in the United States of America, the sum of dollars, to and for the uses of the said Board of Education, and under its direction.”

(When real estate or other property is given, let it be particularly described.)
