TETE A TETE.
Captain Thomas H. Pressnell of 503 West Third street bought roses yesterday, and while this may not be unusual with him those he bought yesterday had a special significance. They were selected with greater care perhaps than usual and at least 26 of them were the choicest and most beautiful within his reach. The occasion was the 26th anniversary of the marriage of Captain and Mrs. Pressnell, and as they were the first people to marry in Duluth the incident is of interest to all at this time. The 26 choice roses which the captain selected with particular care, represent the 26 years of married life.

The following article appeared in The Duluth Minnesotian of April 30, 1870, concerning the first marriage in Duluth: "Amongst the events of the past week, that which made the chief sensation was the first wedding in the city of Duluth, the parties being Miss Cora E. Parker and Captain Thomas H. Pressnell, a gallant soldier of the First Minnesota regiment and battalion. The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride's parents, on Minnesota Point, at 7 1/2 o'clock p. m. on Wednesday evening, April 27. The officiating clergyman was Rev. W. R. Higgins of Superior, the benediction being pronounced by the Rev. George Sluter of Duluth. Miss Lena Hunter was bridesmaid and Frank Ely groomsman. The witnesses of the ceremony were chiefly the relatives and nearest friends of the parties. The bride and her little maid both looked charming, and the ladies pronounced their dresses lovely, but except that all looked white and gossamer-like, we cannot inform our womanly readers generally as to the particular material of which they were made. The occasion was regarded with additional interest that the bride was at the hour of her marriage just 17 years of age - being the first white child born in the city of Hastings, Minn., just 17 years ago. At 8 o'clock, in pursuance of invitations issued by the parents of the bride, the reception of friends took place. Elegant refreshments were served to all comers. There was a universal turnout of the elite and fashion of Duluth, a constant coming and going until a late hour. Although not in the program, quite a number of pretty presents were mad to the bride."
