From New York Times (Feb 9, 1902)
A certain embarrassment is apt to arise in the entertainment of a newly married couple when the bride has been celebrated only by her maiden name. A reception was given a few days ago to the well-known writer, Mary Wilkins, and her husband.
The hostess — who is a journalist of some years' experience, by the way — doubtless anxious that her guests should realize the importance of the occasion, left no room for speculation. She attacked the problem boldy and solved it apparently to her own satisfaction.
The cards read: “To meet Dr. and Mrs. Mary Wilkins Freeman.”
