Amanuensis Monday - Estate of Dorthea Madsen

I found this envelope among grandma Hazel's stuff.

Inside was a handwritten copy of the Letters Testamentary in the Matter of the Estate of Dorthea Madsen. I am hoping to get copies of the original probate record, but for now I am going to go ahead and transcribe this piece.
