The Funeral

On Monday, April 3, at mid-day precisely, the mortal remains of Baroness de Hirsch were removed from her house in the lue de l'Elysee, and carried to the Cimetire Montmartre for interment. In conformity with the special request of the late Baroness, no letters of invitation to the funeral were issued, but nevertheless a large crowd of celebrities assembled at the house before mid-day, as a last act of friendship and respect to the deceased lady who was perhaps more universally beloved than any woman in Europe. The list of those present is far too long to give it in extenso, but among those whomn I noticed may be mentioned the British Ambassador and Lady Monson, Count Wolkenstein-Trostburg, the Austrian Ambassador, Count Tornielli and ]aron d'Anethan, the Italian and Belgian Ambassadors, Prince d'Arenberg (in whose many charitable works the late Baroness had for long years assisted), the Duke de la Tremouille and the Due de Montmorency, Baron Gustave and Baron Edmond de Rothschild, Baron d'Erlanger and Baron Jacques de Gunzburg, General See, General de Bire and Admiral Gervais. Mr. Austin Lee, of the British Embassy, Messrs. Louis Jacques and Edgar Stern, Raphael Cahen d'Anvers and Louis' Cahen d Anvers, Sir Edward Sassoon, Mr. Jack Monson, the Ambassador's nephew and private secretary; Mr. Maurice Ephrussi, Messrs. Michel and Georges Heine, Mr. Theodore Porges, the Marquis de La Rochefonteuilles, and many others. The crowd was so great that not only was the house itself filled to overflowing, but the little Rue de l'Elysee was entirely blocked. In deference to the wishes of the late Baroness no speeches were made, and no flowers placed upon her coffin.

With the death of their only heir, the Baron and Baroness de Hirsch decided to make humanity their heir. One such product of this largess was the Baron de Hirsch Fund, organized in New York City in 1891. ...
