So, if you want to marry, our full wish is for a long and happy union. Now, naturally, any girl would long to walk up that Holy path with Nancy, but too many would spoil things ; so, by drawing lots, Nancy had for company, Sarah Young, Lucy Donaldson, Pris- cilla Standish, Virginia Adams, Doris Johnson and Cora Grant; with Kathlyn as Maid of Honor, as charming an array of youthful glory as you could find in all Branton Hills.
