from Journal of Frances Williams Wynn's continental tour of 1833, page 11:
[We] proceeded to the French Protestant Service at l’Oratoire…. [A] procession of young women came from the Door of the Chancel…. They were all dressed in plain white cambric muslin, with long white muslin veils covering their face and shoulders…. There were fewer boys…. When they were all seated the Psalm or rather Hymn singing begun every verse being previously recited from the reading Desk, according to the laudable rite of the Presbyterian Church.
