In what terms ought the question to be left to the jury as to the prisoner's state of mind at the time when the act was committed?
Side 323 - ... shall, so far as respects the execution and attestation thereof, be a valid execution of a power of appointment by deed or by any instrument in writing not testamentary, notwithstanding it shall have been expressly required that a deed or instrument in writing made in exercise of such power should be executed or attested with some additional or other form of execution or attestation or solemnity...
