£119.14s.6d. the Amount of the Fabled D’aguilar Legacy: Another Mythical Fortune Vanishes

Download PDF for this date

The Prime Minister’s office publishes an official statement from the Austrian Embassy in London, that the supposed immense legacy of Baron d’Aguilar amounts to £119.14s.6d. The money is deposited in the Pay Office of the Supreme Court of Judicature, and can be released by order of the Court of Chancery, but the amount is not large enough, it is added, to justify the cost of litigation for its recovery.
