      • "Wedding Bells"

        The Fletcher-Cloyes Wedding in Chicago Yesterday

        Another of Jamestown's most popular bachelors has emigrated to the state of matrimony. Mr. Charles F. Fletcher, publisher of the Chautauqua Democrat, of this place, was quietly married to Miss Emma Cloyes, of Chicago, at three o'clock yesterday afternoon. The marriage took place at the home of the bride's father Mr. Charles Cloyes, a prominent commission merchant of Chicago, and was witnessed by only a few of the relatives of the contracting parties. Mr. Fletcher has a host of friends in this community and his wife, who is a lady of rare amiability, will make a valuable addition to the society of our town. The happy couple started for Jamestown last evening and arrived here on train 12 today.
      • "Matrimonial."

        Mr. and Mrs. Charles F. Fletcher "At home" Wednesdays in December.

        Train 12 today brought from Chicago Mr. and Mrs. Charles F. Fletcher, and they were met at the depot by scores of friends who welcomed Mr. Fletcher home, and Mrs. Fletcher to her new home. The wedding ceremony of these young people took place at the residence of Mr. Charles Cloyes, the bride's father, in Chicago, yesterday, and was performed by Prof. David Swing. Only the bride's relatives and Mr. A.B. Fletcher and Mr. E.F. Dickinson were present, and the couple started immediately for Jamestown. Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher will reside with Mrs. A. Fletcher, on West Third Street, and reception cards are issued for Wednesdays in December.

        We take considerable pride in making the above announcement; having a sort of fellow feeling for any man who has struggled through a printing office until he reaches an easy chair. Mr. Fletcher is the youngest son of the late Adolphus Fletcher, and was literally born in a printing office, and at present is associated with Mr. A.B. Fletcher, his brother, in the publication of the Democrat, the legacy of their father. His bride visited friends in Jamestown last summer, and is quite well known to our people, and while we welcome her to our society, we have our misgivings about extending the fraternal hand; the printer's life showing off better in poetry than in prose. But laying aside all cares, we join in the general congratulation--may your married life be long in years and filled with joys and blessings.

        (thanks to Kim Clements for sending me the two newspaper articles on this marriage)
