Sloan wrote: "Back in 1906 there was considerable French population north of 23rd Street, and the church near Proctor's Theatre was known as the French Church. The stone steps down which these newlyweds are escaping have since been removed. I hope the couple lived happy ever after." Quoted by Morse, p. 149.
