President of the New Society of Painters in Water Colours. Seen from the shop of a dealer in wearing-apparel and arms. The Bride, wholly enveloped in an Indian shawl, and wearing on her head a small casket containing her jewels and other valuables, is conducted by her matron friends, who walk by her side beneath a canopy borne by four young men. She is preceded by her unmarried sisters or female friends, before whom march musicians playing on hautboys and various drums. A woman beside one of the drummers is uttering the piercing tremulous cry of joy common to such occasions. [P. 30.]
