A church trustee offered for probate as decedent's will a letter wholly written, dated, and signed in the handwriting of decedent. The letter was addressed to proponent, and read: "I am sending you a cashier's check for the $5000.00 I wrote you about last week. Now as to my heirs-I have three nieces, and a husband who has had enough. I'm not interested in any of them. If I leave $5.00 or $5,000.00 I want the church to have it." Probate was denied, and proponent appealed. Held, the letter was entitled to probate. De Lapp v. Anderson, .(Ky. 1947) 203 S.W. (2d) 388.
