The testator died in 1872 leaving to testatrix in trust certain property over which she was given a general power of appointment by will. The testatrix died in 1928 leaving this property in a trust which was found to violate the rule against perpetuities. In discussing this, the question was raised whether in testing the validity of the estate created by the power of appointment, the period of the rule is calculated from the time of the creation of the power of appointment or from the time of its exercise. Held, that the permissible period is to be measured from the time of the creation of the power of appointment. St. Louis Union Trust Co. v. Bassett, (Missouri 1935) 85 S. W. (2d) 569.
