He was lost on the Yacht Cythera. The will of Cornelius Smith Lee, who is supposed to have been lost at sea in the blizzard of March 12, was filed yesterday with Probate Clerk Charles H. Beckett. The petition sets forth that Mr. Lee sailed with William A. Stewart, lawyer, on the yacht Cythera on March 10. The crew consisted of the captain and six men. The yacht was last sighted on the blizzard day sailing under bare poles and has not been heard of since. The will is dated November 1, 1876, and James Andareise and the testator's wife, Mrs. Mattie Walker Lee, are made executors. Mrs. Lee is to receive $20,000 in cash, all the personal property in the testator's house, No. 58 East Fifty-fourth-st., and the income of the residue of the estate for life, provided she does not marry again. When she dies, or if she marries, the residue is to be divided equally between the testator's children, Laura S., James and Cornelius S. Lee, jr. New York Tribune, Tuesday, October 30, 1888
