Thursday Dec 8th 1887
Booroopki 5th Dec.
On Tuesday, 22nd ult., the Rev. J. POLKINGHORNE performed the
pleasing ceremony of uniting in the holy hands of matrimony Miss HAWKINS,
third daughter of Mr. F. W. HAWKINS of Booroopki, and Mr. W. LINDSAY,
of Goroke. Both Bride and Bridesmaids (three sisters of the bride) were
most charmingly and tastefully attired in the customary "vestments of
nuptial white" but I am sorry, for the sake of your female readers,
that I can not give a detailed account of the dresses.
A sumptuous wedding breakfast was partaken of by the guests at the
residence of Mr. H. HAWKINS. Mr. and Mrs. LINDSAY were made the
recipients of many beautiful and useful gifts, they being deservedly popular
in their respective districts, and Goroke is to congratulated on having gained
them as residents.
