Inner envelope of the Powell wedding announcement addresses "Rev. Mr. J. Walter Bassett."In another letter John refers to Walter as "Parson" but this may simply be the inside nickname of one mortician for another. However, Evangeline also asks Walter in another letter, half jokingly, if he could not perform their own marriage ceremony as a parson.
