By the appointment of a court in Hol¬
land, the complaint further sets forth,
Alphonse Lambert Eugene Chevalier De
Stuers is named as curator of Hubert
De Stuers. It is admitted in the com¬
plaint that Malvina Astor, widow of
Henry Astor, is entitled to a one-third
interest in the real estate for life as a
dower. Some doubt as to whether New
York State is entitled to the transfer
tax is implied by a clause in the com¬
plaint which says that the state "may
claim" an interest in the form of an in¬
Museum of Art Sells.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art,
Robert W. DeForest, president, repre¬
sented bj^ Douglas Robinson, Charles S.

through Pease & Elliman to Henry F.

and Refining Corporation, the dwelling
at 2 East 79th street, at the southeast
corner of Fifth avenue, size 32.2x100.
This house was left by will to the Met¬
ropolitan Museum of Art by the late

from plans by C. P. H. Gilbert, and was
occupied by Mr. Fletcher until his death.
The house is generally considered one
of the finest on t^e avenue and is of
limestone. Its interior is finished in the
finest kind of woodwork. In addition,
Mr. Fletcher gave the Museum a very
large collection of works of art. Adjoin¬
ing the house to the east is the resi¬
dence recently purchased by Joseph W.
Harriman, while to the south are the
residences of James B. Duke and Payne
Whitnej'. This property is situated on
the famous Cook block, all of the prop¬
erty between Madison and Fifth avenues,
78th and 79th streets, having been pur¬
chased by Mr. Cook and resold under
very careful restrictions to various par¬
ties, who built private residences for
their own occupancy, so that it is gen¬
erally considered one of the finest blocks
in the city. The buyer will occupy.
