o.p.q. is a difficult one. I would guess that the "q" is quarterly because it was issued by A. G. 2 [Adjutant General 2. A. G. is a person and the 2 is a branch in his department] Could "o" be for officers and "p" be for personnel. The AG branch dealt with personnel matters.

1920?? David resident 10th Street, close to 5th Ave, NYC "He did not believe anyone else in the world in his limited profession was in a class with (himself)" Claire Carvalho
1925 Advt NYC Directory "Expert in Handwriting" 258 Broadway R409
29 Jun1925 died at his home New Rochelle, Westchester, NY
"My father devoted a great deal of his time to a consideration of disputed Wills. Others have (hidden) their wills in some queer cache (where) .they would not think of concealing even a small amount of money" "Long before his career had passed its zenith, my father estimated that he had affected the courts' decisions as to .. property aggregating over £200million a large share (being) will disputes"
"When my father died we children hunted high and low for signs of a Will. There was none in his safe-deposit box, nor among any of his papers. My sisters and brothers do not think he ever executed a will. I believe that he did and that he put it away for safe-keeping. Perhaps he had more than one deposit box. Somehow where a will is concerned men cannot help being secretive. When he died he was trying to tell us something but he could not force his lips and tongue to form the words. "Box" he said. "What is it father?" asked one of my brothers. "Box" he repeated. Then he ceased to be able to say anything"

So the estate was administered as an intestacy and eldest son Bertram appointed administrator by the Surrogates Court, Westchester, NY to distribute the assets equally among the 5 siblings. Adele used her share to purchase the long lease on 66 Harley Street, London.
