While Vulcanizing Tires He Receives News of a Bequest of $40,000.
Special to The New York Times.
NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., March 1.—A messenger bearing two large envelopes entered the works of the New Brunswick Tire Company yesterday morning and inquired for Antonio Seriance, an employe. Mr. Seriance, who was hard at work vulcanizing tires, found that the letters announced the death of his aunt in Austria and the fact that she had bequeathed him about $40,000.
The letters were from Dr. Heinrich Lorber of Marburg, Austria, the executor of the will of Mrs. Maria Schraml of that place, who died Jan 21. Seriance lived with his aunt until 1888, when he was nineteen years old. Then he came to America and settled in this city, where he secured employment and married. He visited his aunt last August.
