The Daily New Mexican for Tuesday July 8, 1873 reads:
As announced in our issue of yesterday, the funeral of don Pablo Delgado took place this morning. All last night the body laid in a black suit, on a neatly devised altar to give his numerous friends and acquaintances an opportunity to view his familiar features for the last time. Hundreds took advantage of the privilege; during the whole night crowds were passing in and out, and at no hour were there less than one hundred persons present. At 6 1/2 o'clock this morning the funeral procession formed and marched to the Catholic Cathedral, where the most impressive ceremonies were performed, before an immense audience of citizens and mourners. From thence the procession headed by a father of the church, proceeded to the Rosario graveyard where the body was let down to its last resting place. Notwithstanding the long road, the heat and the dust, the gathering at the grave, composed of our best and most respectable citizens, was one of the largest we ever witnessed and is the best compliment that could be paid to his memory.
Don Pablo was born in Los Serrillos, or what is known as the Delgado Rancho, on the 19th of March 1822, and is therefore a little over 51 of age. The family to which he belonged is one of the oldest, wealthiest and most influential in the Territory. Their residence dates back over two hundred years and their history is one of influence and power. His first ancestor to this country was Don Manuel Delgado, who was sent hither as a Captain under the Spanish government. The intelligence, energy and shrewdness of that great commander has been the birthright of the family ever since. They married and intermarried with other powerful families until their connections and relations bound together the four points of the compass, and at no time in their history have they failed to hold some of the reins of government. The last father left five sons who grew up in the good soil of the past and detracted nothing from the illustrious name which they bore. About six years ago, death laid his clammy hand on one of these brothers --Don Simon Delgado-- whom many of our citizens recall with the fondest recollections for his sterling worth as a citizen; for his valuable influence as a prominent politician and for his integrity and affability as an accomplished gentleman. Death again has thrust his hand among the brothers and torn another great branch from the sturdy tree --it fell upon the respected, the lamented Don Pablo; and but three are left to moisten with brother's tears, the dust that hides him forever.
Under the Mexican rule his genius was recognized as promising, but his youth forestalled promotion. It was not until the United States took possession of the country, that his abilities were put to public use and his importance felt. From that time to the present, his influence has been felt and courted. As a legislator, he won a reputation for sagacity and statesmanship, and as Treasurer of the Territory, he exhibited a financial ability that is seldom equaled. As a respectable, influential, important and valuable citizen, we cannot say too much of him. No man stood higher in the estimates of his fellow men than he. No name is all Santa Fe, was oftener in the mouths of good men than his name. No record of a public officer is clearer than his; and no character as a man is purer than Don Pablo's. To lose such a man in the meridian of his years, is a loss to the people and the state that claim him; but death asks neither people nor states, questions. While we regret and the whole country will regret, that he has been taken from us, we cannot refrain from saying that our deepest feeling will be one of sympathy for the bereaved widow and the seven little children that he leaves behind him to fight the world without a husband and a father. May a find Providence take care of these, and may the name of Don Pablo, linked with Don Simon, be ever revered and honored his good deeds they undersign."
