The End Came Unexpectedly at the Albemarle Hotel

C. Albert Stevens died yesterday at the Albemarle Hotel. Although Mr. Stevens had been suffering from pneumonia for some days, his death was unexpected, even to his wife, who left his bedside only a few moments before the end came.

Mr. Stevens was a member of the Stevens family of Castle Point, Hoboken. He was a son of Mrs. Edwin Augustus Stevens who died two years ago at the castle. Albert Stevens has always been a conspicuous figure in New York society. He possessed, in appearance, the strong features of the family, dressed well, was conspicuous at many entertainments, and was a member of a number of fashionable clubs, including the Union, the Knickerbocker, the Racquet, the Meadow Brook, the New York Yacht, and others. He was prominent in the sporting world, was one of the best cross-country riders in the United States, and adept in and a patron of many sports.

He was a graduate of Columbia, '87, and very well versed in literature. He had an extraordinary memory, and could repeat many of the works of the English poets from cover to cover. He was also a patron of the drama. He was hospitable and jovial. For several years he had been in failing health. He had frequent nervouse [sic] attacks, but he rallied from them marvelously. He had any number of friends, and was a general favorite. Then years ago he married Miss Mary M. Brady, the eldest daughter of the late judge John R. Brady. Miss Brady was a noted beauty and had many suitors. She is to-day one of the most beautiful of the young matrons in society. She has been a model of wifely devotion. This Winter Mr. and Mrs. Stevens took a house in town, where they entertained until the end of the season.

They had recently moved to Roslyn, their country seat. Whenever Mr. and Mrs. Stevens came to town they stopped at the Albemarle. Mr. Stevens leaves no children but a number of brothers and sisters. Among them are Edwin A. Stevens, Richard Stevens, Robert Livingston Stevens, Mrs. Archibald Alexander, and Mrs. Edward Parke Custis Lewis.

The Stevens estate is very large, and is held in trust. C. Albert Stevens, however, was quite a wealthy man in his own right.
