Hubbell and Mrs. H. a daughter of Mr. James Austin and during the fifteen years of their married life, as before they were married, they have occupied a prominent place in society- none more respected.

It was a happy occasion and long to be remembered by those present. Mr. and Mrs. H. spared no effort to make the evening pleasant for their guests. The evening was spent in social intercourse interspereced with some excellent instrumental music and singing.
