The young couple, however, have the best wishes of a large circle friends, who extend their congratulations and wish them a long and prosperous life.

    How strange…to keep the wedding a secret.

    More on how language changes: “Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz are housekeeping on east Church street, near the Catholic church.”

    “Be It Remembered…” And Deb Sweeney is doing her part to keep the memory preserved… 🙂
