§ 60. EXCEPTION PERTAINING TO HOLOGRAPHIC WILLS. Where
the will is written wholly in the handwriting of the testator, the
attestation of the subscribing witnesses may be dispensed with.
Such a will may be made self-proved at any time during the
testator's lifetime by the attachment or annexation thereto of an
affidavit by the testator to the effect that the instrument is his
last will; that he was at least eighteen years of age when he
executed it (or, if under such age, was or had been lawfully
married, or was then a member of the armed forces of the United
States or of an auxiliary thereof or of the Maritime Service); that
he was of sound mind; and that he has not revoked such instrument.
