Washington, Nov. 25.
Late this afternoon Francis Bowes Sayre and Jessie Woodrow Wilson, one of President Wilson's daughters, stood before Rev. Sylvester Beach in the east room of the White House and were made man and wife.The entire affair was very simple as had been requested by the bride, and the number of guests was rather small- distressingly so to many persons in official and social circles of Washington who had expected to receive invitations but were disappointed.Miss Margaret Woodrow Wilson, eldest of the three daughters, acted as maid of honor to her sister, and Miss Eleanor Randolph Wilson, the youngest, was one of the bridesmaids. The other three bridesmaids were Miss Adeline Mitchell Scott of Princeton, daughter of Prof. William B. Scott; Miss Marjorie Brown of Atlanta, Ga., daughter of Mrs. Wilson's cousin, Col. E. T. Brown, and Miss Mary G. White of Baltimore, a college friend of the bride. After the ceremony was completed and the couple had received the congratulations of the guest, refreshments were served, and then Mr. and Mrs. Sayre departed for their honeymoon. Their plans include a visit to the home of Miss Nevin, Mr. Sayre's aunt, at Windsor Forges, near Churchtown, Pa., where they first met. After January 1 they will live in Williamstown, Mass., for Mr. Sayre is to sever his connection with the office of District Attorney Whitman in New York and become assistant to Harry A. Garfield, president of Williams College. The newspaper article submitted by Shirley Fortenberry Ramshur.
