Ørsted looses a son. Oehlenschläger's seventieth birthday is celebrated in Copenhagen. He dies. Ørsted looses a daughter. Ørsted celebrates his fiftieth anniversary as a university teacher. The Government, the Students’ Association, the Freemasons, the University, the Polytechnic Institute, etc pay homage to him. Ørsted catches a severe cold that worsens to pneumonia, and his doctor is unable to cure him. Ørsted dies and his death mask is shown. Andersen weeps. Friends and colleagues write poems. Bishop Mynster has no part in the funeral, and is shown contempt by the funeral procession turning its back against his residence. The funeral sermon is delivered in Vor Frue Kirke by Rev. Tryde, and by the grave by his son-in-law. His Masonic lodge commemorates him.
