Will of A. E. Kent
A Chicago dispatch of January 23 says that by the will of Albert E. Kent of San Rafael, Cal., filed in the probate court there, Yale university is given $50,000 for the completion of a laboratory which bears the name of the donor. The will disposes of an estate of $1,256,000, of which $1,146,000 is real estate. The original will, sighed Aug. 26, 1897, consists of about 100 words, written in script on a torn portion of a sheet of legal paper. In this instrument three-fourths of the estate is bequeathed to the widow and the remaining one-fourth to a son, William Kent. The widow’s legacy is conditioned by a request that she pay to H. Ends, now in Japan, $1500, and to Patrick Ross of San Rafael, Cal., the same amount. A bequest of $500 annuity is made to Mrs. A. McCoy of Pasadena, Ca., and an additional $1000 to Mrs. Ross.
In a codicil written on a small scrap of note paper January 9, 1900, the bequest to H. Ends is revoked. A third codicil, written on another scrap of notepaper, September 4, 1900, bequeaths $5000 to each of the following: Mrs. Caroline L. Cooley, Hartford, Conn., a sister; Mary Stearns Burke, Genoa, Neb.; Mary Elizabeth Parsons, San Rafael, Cal., and William Savage, Golconda, Nev.
