      In the name of God Amen ~ I John Doughty of the District of Moyamensing in
      the County of Philadelphia, Manufacturer being in perfect health of body,
      and Sanity of Mind and being sensible of the uncertainty of Mortal life
      and all things therein connected and impressed with a sense of duty I owe
      to those who are dependant on me, I do hereby declare and acknowledge this
      instrument of writing to be my last Will and testament ~
      Item 1st. It is my will that any funeral expenses (which I hope may be
      moderate) shall be paid as soon as possible after my decease.
      Item 2nd. I will also that all my just debts shall be paid as soon as
      practicable without subjecting my property to a sacrifice ... thereby
      injuring my children and their mother.
      Item 3rd. I give and bequeath to Lavinia Haas daughter of Jacob Haas ...
      Mount Airy, Philadelphia County (and who is the mother of my children)
      Five Hundred Dollars for her sole use and behoof forever, and also so much
      of my household furniture as may be necessary for the comfort of herself
      and my Children.
      Item 45th.  All the residue of my property whether in goods, wares,
      merchandise, monies, Policies of insurance or other personal property, It
      is my will shall so be disposed of as to form a consolidated fund and put
      at interest yielding if possible Six percent per Annum and I hereby give
      and bequeath the same to my Children born of the above named Lavinia Haas,
      say Mary born February the 21st, 1842 and Lavinia born June 11, 1845, the
      above named residuary estate, on the terms following to wit.  The interest
      of the within named fund is to be applied to their education and their
      support jointly with their mother, until each child or attain the age of
      twenty one years, after all the children alone are to receive and enjoy
      said interest, until they each attain the further age of Thirty years at
      which time and not until then is the principal to be used on any account
      whatever and when these children shall so have attained the age each of
      Thirty years, the principal is to be divided between them in equal
      proportions and only on their respective orders in writing.  Should
      however, one survive the other, the survivor is to receive the whold on
      the terms and principles above allowed to them jointly.  But should both
      children die before they attain the age of twenty one years, then it is my
      will that their mother the said Lavinia Haas shall receive One thousand
      dollars in lieu of the Five hundred Dollars mentioned in item 3rd.
         In witness of the above I have hereunto set my hand and seal this
      fifteenth day of June in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred
      and forty-six.

It is not enough to educate. There must be a focus afterward.
The brightest spot of that focus should be space.
Joint geo and humanitarian projects should be right behind,
since the space effort will shepherd all others.
