Bulk of His Estate Left to Mrs. Spencer in Trust for Life
Special to The New York Times
NEWPORT, R. I., April 1---The will of Lorillard Spencer, who died in New York last month, was filed for probate to-day, and disposes of a large estate, including his handsome cottage here, Halidon Hall, and properties in New York. The will was made in New York April 28, 1911, and William A. Spencer of Paris, a brother; Lorillard Spencer, Jr., a son, Wolcott G. Lane of New York, are the executors and Trustees.

Mrs. Spencer receives $100,000, in addition to jewelry and personal effects, save boats; Newport Casino stock and Newport Reading room stock and fellowship in the American Academy of Design, which go to the son.

Each servant receives $100 for each year of continuous service. His interest in a farm at Williamsbridge, Bronx, N. Y., eventually goes to Lorrilard Spencer, Jr. The grandson, Lorillard Spencer, third, receives $25,000 in trust, and the executors are directed to set aside a sum which would net $200 income annually for Elsie Lurette of Paris.

The residue is left in trust, the income to be paid to Mrs. Spencer during her life, then to his son, Lorillard Spencer, Jr. The document makes no other provision for the son, who is amply provided for under the will of his grandfather.
