The following is a copy of a letter by an aged maiden lady friend with a request that it be read to the company. The letter was folded in the old-fashioned way and sealed with a wafer without an envelope and directed to "Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo Nicholson, present," and read as follows: "South Richland. Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson: as I have known Mr. Nicholson since a child, I venture to speak to him of the great mistake I think he has made in not giving me an invitation to his place this evening, and looked up some smart gentleman with an ox sled and straw and blankets, as we went when I was young. I guess with a careful man I might have come. I suppose you thought I was poor, but I might have given one silver dollar, the man another. See what you have lost! And I may have got so young that with you or consent there might have been a new wedding at your house this evening. Sony to trouble you just now, but here are three cents to pay you the trouble of reading this. Please be careful how you speak about this for I fear I shall get laughed at" After, the inner man had been fully satisfied from the tables. The marriage ceremony was duly performed by I. J. Rich, Esq., who, after congratulating the youthful couple upon their happiness thus far, and warning them of the dangers that might befall them as a newly married couple, and after admonishing all present that if any had ought to say why those two should not be joined in the bonds of padlock to speak out or forever after hold their yawp, no reply being made in the usual questions being duly answered, the young couple of twenty-five years of married life were sent on their way, rejoicing. At a late hour the company broke up, all feeling that they had enjoyed a good time.
