Martha Solomon

The will (dated Dec. 9, 1880), with two codicils (dated April 26, 1882), of Mr. Israel Solomon, late of No. 70, Piccadilly, fruiterer, who died on May 3 last, has been proved by Mrs. Martha Solomon, the widow, Solomon Benjamin, and Solomon Benjamin, jun., the executors, the personal estate exceeding 18,000. Subject to a few legacies and annuities, some of which are not payable until his wife's death, the testator leaves his property upon trust for his wife, for life, but in the event of her marrying again she is to have one fourth of the income only; and then for the six children of his sister, Mrs. Adelaide Levy.
