Title So They Were Finally Wed
Description opened in front of us. "Hello, come right in boys," said the pretty, smiling face. We stuttered and stammered, "Is the Bishop home?" we found ourselves saying. "Yes, he's down stairs.

"We ah, we ah, we were walking along and saw this melon patch, but well, we didn't know it was yours." we added quickly. "If we had we surely would have let it be." We breathlessly awaited his response. We didn't have to wait long. "God bless you boys!" he exclaimed. And then he added, "Hanna, go down in the cellar and get these boys some melons." The Bishop patted us on the head and blessed us as if we were real heroes! Source: Family history 1849-1925 Sanpete County SO THEY WERE FINALLY WED James L.

My mother acted as hostess, wearing her beautiful new blue figured silk dress. -7-
