Certificate to Franklin D. Love from Dr. E.S. Miller

Copy of a certificate given to me by Dr. E.S. Miller now living in Johnson City, Tennessee, and who was my Father’s family physician-F.D. Love

Johnson City, Tennessee.

April 11th, 1902

This is to certify that I, Dr. E. S. Miller, (family physician of Robert Love, deceased,) at and before the death of COL. Robert Love, who died at his home in Johnson City, Washington County, Tennessee, Sept. 1st, 1876, heard him say that he wanted Franklin D. Love, his youngest child, to have his watch, the one he wore up to the day of his death; that I repeatedly heard him say the above, even while he lay ill with his last sickness. The said watch being No. 28228, a Swiss movement, made Jules Jaccard, Geneva, Switzerland. This the 11th day of April 1902.

E. S. Miller, Jr., M.D. (Signed)

Note: this is the watch I now wear, and it was the one that my Father, Robert Love, wore prior to his death, and he and Judge John Baxter, his brother-in-law, can Capt John Jaques, First President of the road running through Johnson City, purchased one each, by ordering the same from the Factory in Switzerland. They cost at that time $280.00 each. I got this certificate from Dr. Miller when I was back in Tennessee in the year 1902, because my brother Nathaniel seemed to think that my Father did not desire me to have it expressly, and that I got it through the consent of the family, being the youngest. I trust this certificate will satisfy all who read it. It is bone fide. F.D. Love
