AN ALDERMAN'S WILL. A meeting of the Court of Aldermen was lately held at the Guildhall for the despatch of business, the Lord Mayor presiding. A report was read from the City Solicitor (Sir T. J. Nelson) stating that the late Mr. Alder- man Wilson had left by deed in 1865 a sum of JE4600 on trust to present, at his death, a ring, worth £5; to the Lord Mayor and the aldermen of his old ward of Castle Baynard, and a ring worth Y,3 to the rest of the aldermen; next to present a ring worth,L5 to each alderman of Castle Baynard Ward in suecesaionand then to provide certain dinners annually to the aldermen and other officials. By a deed in 1868, the alderman conveyed a large sum, estimated to be eventually worth £10,000 a year, for educational pur- poses but as meanwhile the Endowed School Commia- sioners had taken possession of certain estates belonging to the Corporation, the alderman in 1870 revoked the deed, and the property went to his son. The Court then adjourned.
