Richard Cutts Shannon, Civil War diary, Volume 2a (September 1863-January 1865) (rcs-diary-vol2a-021-c.pdf)

10th. Received Roget's wedding

cards & started in barge for

Harlem at 10.30 A.m. Arrived

at the church in season to hear some excellent music before the happy couple [word crossed out] entered.

Brides maids & groom appeared

to be very happy.

Rodgers looked splendid

& the whole affair was conducted according to the most approved forms of the 5th. avenue, I suppose [?]

The pews on either side of

the middle aisle up which the couple passed were crowded
