Charitable institutions will receive $200,000 in addition to the $25,000 left in the will of Bernard Mayer, New York real estate dealer, disposing of an estate of $2,000,000. Nathan D. Stern, attorney, stated this represents a wish Mr. Mayer intended to have put in a codicil. Under the will the Lebanon Hospital Association of New York and the Mount Sinai Hospital each receive $10,000. Bequests of $1,000 each go to Mount Sinai Nurses Training School, Maimonides Benefit Society, Montefiore Home, Beth Israel Hospital Association and Hebrew Benevolent Association. The remainder of the estate is left to the widow and six children.
