Marriage without acquaintance
There was a marriage in Middletown, N.Y. Thurs. eve., the parties being a young lady who has resided there and a telegraph operator from Peru, Indiana. It is related that a little over a year ago, through mutual friends, the parties commenced a correspondence, which finally culminated in the young man proposing marriage. The young lady gratefully accepting, Thurs. was fixed upon as the happy day, and the young man arrived Wed. eve. The young lady met him at the depot, from out the crowd they selected their destinies, and the next evening they were made one.
