Tuesday, August 19, 2003 A little later who should come out on the porch and set themselfs ner us but the bride and glum.
Oh I said to myself I hope they will talk so as I can hear them as I have always wandered what newlyweds talk about on their way to Niagara Falls and soon my wishs was realized.
Some night said the young glum are you warm enough.
I am perfectly comfertible replid the fare bride tho her looks belid her words what time do we arrive in Buffalo.
9 oclock said the lordly glum are you warm enough.
I am perfectly comfertible replid the fare bride what time do we arive in Buffalo.

Well maybe it is replid the fare bride and without farther adieu they went in the spacius parlers.
