Always Be Good Jews and Never Marry Outside Faith Nathan Straus Enjoins on His Children in His Will

Always be good Jews and never marry outside the faith, the late Nathan Straus enjoins on his children in his will which has just been made public here. Mr. Straus has left an estate of a million dollars, all of which goes to his children, no provision being made for charity. Mr. Straus explains that “I gave the most that was possible in my lifetime.”

The Board of Aldermen of the City of New York have decided to rename Rutger’s Square Straus Square, in memory of Mr. Nathan Straus.
