Wedding Bells at Christmas (Shell – Littler)

From the December 27, 1906 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Wedding Bells at Christmas.

Assistant Postmaster Fred Shell and Miss Cora Littler were united in holy matrimony on Christmas day at noon, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Littler, Rev. W. H. Welton officiating.

A want of time and space permits us only to say that it was a neat, quiet home wedding in the best taste with a sumptuous dinner. The contracting parties are our home folks and this is not a surprise to the public.

The New Era joins with every person in town to extend greetings. Long life and happiness is our wish.
