Full Text

In the presence of the immediate friends of the contracting parties, the marriage was quietly solemnized on Saturday afternoon, July 10th, of Elsie Mary Briggs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Briggs, to James Mitchell, of Toronto. The ceremony was held at the home of the bride's parents. 4 Robinson street south, Rev. Neil M. Leckie officiating. The bride wore a street length frock of turquoise sheer, trimmed with blue lace. Her gold and platinum wrist watch was the gift from the groom. The attendants were Mr. and Mrs. Harley Kinney, of St. Ann's, cousins of the bride, Mrs. Kinney wearing an attractive gown of dusky rose crepe. Following the ceremony the happy couple left for a holiday in Muskoka, and upon their return will make their home in Toronto. On the previous Thursday Mrs. Mitchell received a summons to appear at the C.N.R. offices in Toronto where the groom has been employed for the past 20 years. Amid such merriment and with many complimentary speeches testifying to the high regard in which Mr. Mitchell is held, the couple were presented by the staff with a complete set of pyrex kitchen ware, together with a substantial cash gift. At a party given in her honour in the garden of Mrs. C.H. Walker's home, last week, by the choir of Grimsby Baptist Church, Mrs. Mitchell was made the recipient of a handsome carved wood serving tray.
