Bezanson - Putnam

A despatch from Newburyport, Mass., to the Boston Herald, says:

"Elder Walter S. Bezanson, pastor of the Charter Street Church, and Miss Florence T. Putnam, were united in marriage Aug. 15th, at the home of the bride's parents, on Franklin street, by Elder W. H. Murphy, of Everett.

"The ceremony was performed in the parlor, which was tastefully decorated with flowers. Miss Mabel Lang, of Newburyport, was bridesmaid, and G. H. Cloyes, of Somerville, was best man. The bride was dressed in a white mull gown, trimmed with white lace, and wore a long tulle veil.

"A reception was held from 2 to 4, and many friends gave congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Bezanson left on a late afternoon train for the White Mountains. The happy couple received a purse filled with gold from the church over which Mr. Bezanson is settled. On their return Mr. and Mrs. Bezanson will make their home on Federal Street, Newburyport."

(Elder Bezanson is a native of Grafton. His friends in this county will unite with us in congratulations and best wishes).4
