On January 18, Mr. Georg son of Franz Dukart from Marienthal, Canada and Florentina, daughter of Mr. Johannes Jochim from Fallon, North Dakota, were united in wedlock. The marriage was officiated by Mr. F. Niegler or Riegler(?), the parson of the village of Fallon. The witnesses were Hyronimus Schnell from Marienthal, Saskatchewan, Canada, and Matthias Barth from Fallon, North Dakota. It followed with a reception with good food and drinks. During the festival you heard different German songs which were accompanied by an organ. I also was at the reception. On the 19th of January, the young married couple left for home, Marienthal, Canada. May God's blessing and lots of luck follow them.
