At the Laclede Hotel , St. Louis, on Thursday, February 8, 1883, at 12 o'clock M. Morris Himelreich, Esq., of Farmington, and Miss Angelia Mayer of St. Louis, Rabbi Sonnenshien officiating.
By the above it will be seen that our genial friend M. Himelreich has finally come to the conclusion that it is not good for man to live alone, and like the sensible person he is, has persuaded an accomplished and beautiful young lady to link her fate with his for the balance of life's journey.
It's useless to speak of Mr. Himelreich's good qualities--they are all too well known or his enterprise and business sagacity--they show for themselves.
The bride is a resident of St. Louis, a lady-like, accomplished and sensible woman, and will make her a husband a good wife.
About 25 couples were in attendance at the ceremony mainly friends of the family. the presents were very numerous, at the head being a check for $500 from the bride's brother, besides many other useful articles.
Our congratulations are tendered the happy couple who have our warmest wishes for their success in life.
