Paper: Dubuque Daily Times (Dubuque, Iowa)
We acknowledge the receipt of a dainty note of invitation, all the way from Fayette, to the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Duncan, on Tuesday, March 4th. The most interesting portion of the document, to us, was the feminine name that occupied the left hand lower corner of the card, which let us into the secret that Mrs. Duncan is none other than Miss Sarah B. Scobey that was, whom we use to know as a wee bit of a girl, fifteen years ago, and whose father is the “Nasby” of Fayette. The wedding took place at the residence of the bride’s father Rev. W. A. Allen. We would gladly have been present, but the inclemency of the weather forbade. However, we see by the Fayette news that the wedding went right on, just the same as if we had been there. The bride was the recipient of a number of valuable and elegant presents, including a silver cake basket, a set of silver knives, a silver tea set, a napkin ring, a beautiful Bible, &c., &c. The happy couple, just launching forth into the unknown future of married life, have the best wishes of many sincere friends for life-long prosperity and happiness.
