Lawyers call it one of the most unique wills ever written.

On Friday, the University of Saskatchewan's College of Law
celebrated the 65th anniversary of a will written by farmer Cecil George Harris
of Rosetown, Sask.

Harris scratched out the will as he was dying in 1948,
having been trapped for 10 hours beneath a tractor during a heavy storm.

Using a pocketknife, Harris wrote on the tractor's fender
the words: "In case I die in this mess, I leave all to the wife."

He died in the hospital that night from his injuries.

A judge ordered that portion of the tractor cut off and it
has been displayed under a piece of glass in the Law Library ever since.

This is known as a holograph will, meaning written by hand.
