1908 Christmas Wedding

Christmas Bells~~A very pleasant home wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Benjamin, in Conway, on Christmas day at one o'clock p.m. when their youngest daughter, Mabel, was joined in wedlock with Lee C. Sprague, the Rev. W.G. Stephens performing the ceremony in the presence of an invited company of about 50, largely immediate relatives of the families. The couple were unattended and Grace Bigelow rendered the wedding march. The house decorations were Christmas bells and holly very tastefully arranged.

The bride and groom are well and favorably known to a large circle of friends who will all join in wishing them happiness and prosperity and the large list of beautiful and costly presents gave conclusive evidence of the esteem and regard of the donors.

After a few days visiting with relatives and friends, they will occupy their new home at Holly, which is already in readiness for them there, Mr. Sprague having a lucrative position there in the office of the railroad company.
