Brooklyn Society Gossip #2
A brilliant reception was given on
board the Colorado on Thursday
afternoon by the officers, which
was thoroughly enjoyed by all
present. These entertainments are
becoming more and more popular.
They are given twice a month and
are looked forward to with great
anticipation by those fortunate
enough to possess invitations. The
promenade music was furnished by
the Navy Yard band and the dancing
music by Conterno's orchestra.
Among the guests were Miss
Babcock, Miss Wood, of Elizabeth,
N.J.; Miss Bruce, Miss DePeu, of
Philadelphia; Miss Addie Paddock,
Miss Welsh, Mrs. Page Dennis, Miss
Minnie Tuttle, Miss Atkinson, Miss
Cilta, Mrs. Barre, Miss Lowing,
Miss Ellis, Miss Cushman,
Lieutenants Cottman, Calhoun and
Fisk, of the Colorado; Lieutenants
Hawkes, Brown and Howe, of the
Alarm; Mr. Feuchtwanger, Mr.
Dougherty, Mr. Barbour, William
Cooper, Mr. McGuire and others.
The marriage of Henry Fowler to
Miss Ellen Caroline Diller was
solemnized at St. Luke's Episcopal
Church, Clinton avenue, Thursday.
Notwithstanding the quietness of
the affair the church was filled
with friends and relatives. The
ceremony was conducted by the Rev.
D.V.M. Johnson, D.D., according to
the Episcopal formula. The bride
was attired in a tasty traveling
dress. Miss Diller is the daughter
of the late Rev. Jacob W. Diller,
D.D., whose recent death by the
Seawanhaka disaster is still fresh
in the minds of the readers of the
Eagle. Dr. Diller was rector of
the church in which she was
married, and it is in consequence
of the recent bereavement that the
wedding was of a quiet nature.
