'Monday May 10th In the evening sister Fountain & I was married at our house in the presence of our Bengalee friends etc.. This marriage had been intended for some time, but circumstances hindered . The marriage covenant ceremony was of my own choosing. Bro. C opened the business by a few words of introduction & then read the marriage agreement. I then took Sister F by the hand, & walked up to the table, saying, We sign this our solemn covenant to each other. We then signed it, & about a dozen brethren & friends European & native added their signatures. Then Bro. C made a very appropriate address to the married couple on the duties of husband & wife & made a very pleasant allusion to our family situation in which all personal interests were swallowed up in the interest of the whole. The whole was concluded with a short prayer by Bro. Carey. I gave some fruit & a few things of native manufacture amongst the native friends and thus the marriage was celebrated.'
