The telegram was followed by a second message to the Consul General from the executors stating that Dr. Frederick Tomlin, Mr. Sutton's son-in-law, was is at Halifax, was authorized to take the body and personal effects he being the personal representative of the executors.

The estate is said to be worth $50,000 and upwards. Of this the wife is to receive a two-thirds life interest and the residence and furniture at the Haddonfield home. A daughter, Mrs. Tomlin, is given the remaining one-third during her life time and on the decease of both the estate reverts to the children of Mrs. Tomlin.
