Extraordinary will

A year ago an extraordinary will was proved at Pesth, whereby the testator, a physician named Goldberger de Buda, left half his fortune – about a quarter of a million florins – to accumulate for the benefit of posterity until the interest should suffice to relive destitution universally.

According to a calculation made by the testator, his wishes might be carried out when the capital represented 209 millions of florins.

The will is now contested by one of the legatees, and the case is to be tried next November, when claimants are expected from London, the United States and Madrid.
