Although Albert Lorsch of New York made a fortune dealing in precious stones, when he died, a year and a half
ago, he had no jewels in his personal possession save one -- a fine pear-shaped pearl in a scarf pin. He left an
estate of three millions and made numerous bequests to Jewish charities. He carried a watch valued at $57, a
chain of equal value and wore a comparatively inexpensive pair of cuff links.
