Du Buque Visitor, Saturday, Aug 26, 1837, Dubuque, IA, Page:4

Excerpt taken from longer article:

On the 3d of this month, her son, Mr. Alexander Butterworth, was married by the Rev Mr. Mazzuchelli, to Miss Mary McDermott of this place. There we enjoyed “the feast of reason and the flow of the soul” in reality, when “with gladdened eyes and hearts elate,” we beheld a lady of 106 dancing at her son’s wedding ball. Then who would not dance. And so we did
“Trip the light fantastic toe
In buoyant fairy fashion.”
