I" COMPELLEID TO SELL." LORD TREDEGAR'S BRECON ESTATE. A CONSEQUENCE OF DEATH DUTIES. Lord Tredegar has decided to part with the greater portion of his Breconshire estate, comprising, it is understood, 7,000 acres. This important step on the part of his lordship was announced at the rent audit Ginner at Brecon on Friday by Mr. H. F. W. Harries, the agent, who stated that Lord Tredegr.r had told him that he would he compelled to sell the property to provide the very large sum of money he had to pay ill death duties. Tenants on the estate would have the first opportunity of purchasing their holdings, and Lord Tred-egar would do everything he possibly could to help them in doing so. It is understood that 7,000 acres of the Breoonshire estate will come into the market, but that the Manor of Brecon, including the Great Forest and the Dderw House and farm, will be reserved.
