The Times Democrat has been called on to witness and extend its congratulations to many of its friends on similar occasions. But it has never so deeply and earnestly wished, or felt the same interest in the welfare of a newly married couple as it does in this case. It is supposed the best wishes of their friends are extended to them also. Friday 27 January 1895

The happy young couple have the best wishes of a host of friends for a happy and prosperous future. The Republican extends its hearty congratulations. Friday 16 November 1900
