of a husband. The wetl-known banker!
and yachtsman is understood to enter-,
tain a strong dislike for international
matrimonial alliances, particularly i
where a member of his own family is j
concerned. But the determination of
his wife and daughter won the day, and
after a personal interview with his
prospective son-in-law, in which the lat

Mr. Iselin gave his consent for the mar

Met in Rome.
Miss Iselin and Count Colloredo
Mannsfield met for the first time last
year, when Mr. Iselin and his family
were in Rome. They became engaged
to be married before Miss Iselin return

would have occurred earlier had not
Mr. Iselin been opposed to his daugh

belong to a highly distinguished family.
His mother is the sister of Baron Ach

the peace of Europe. The family own
a castle near Aquileja, which was built
in 1302. The head of the house is
; Prince Joseph, who married twice, but
: is childless.
By marrying Miss Iselin the' count
i allies himself with one of the first fam

I Iselins have been prominent in finance,
I in business and in the social life of the
j metropolis. The head of the family

ago. His father was a Swiss capitalist,
who to this country from Basle,
Switzerland, early in the la&t century

glove industries of Lyons.
The Iselin Fami’y Wealth.
A<lrian Iselin was the founder of the
banking, house of A. Iselin & Co., of
36 Wall street. At the outbreak of the
■ civil his firm gained such strength
| that to finance the govern
, ment. At his death Mr. Iselin’s wealth
was estimated at upwards of $30,000,-
I 000.
Adrian Iselin left seven children, of
i j whom C. Oliver Iselin is the oldest and
•: consequently succeeded his father as
• ; head of the family and of the great
.; t anking house bearing their name. The
■ | large interests of the family are-wvest
j ed principally in railroads and mining
j stocks and real estate. Socially the j
' family has for years ranked among the '
I first in New York. C. Oliver Iselin is
, noted as a sportsman and particularly
as a yachtsman. It wasYie who success
fully defended the America’s cup in the
international yacht races against the
Valkyrie I. and 11.
Adrian Iselin, Sr., erected a hand
some Catholic church in New Rochelle
j and was a liberal giver to that church,;
' though himself not a Catholic. His
wife, however, was a very devout mem.
