Download PDF for this date

The death of a rich brother in Philadelphia has raised Chaim Wolf Greenstein, a Jew living in the town of Stedrin, from poverty to comparative wealth.

Greenstein announced today that he is to inherit $150,000 as the only heir of Morris Greenstein, Philadelphia clothing merchant, who died recently unmarried. He was 52 years old.

Greenstein said he had not heard from his brother in many years.
