Camp –Field

Last Thursday evening, at the residence of the bride’s mother, on Erwin street, Mr. Herbert A. Camp, of Mulberry, Ga., was married to Miss Maxey Field.

The marriage was a very quiet one, none but the family relatives besides the minister, Rev. J. B. Robins, who performed the ceremony, being present, it being the desire of the contracting parties that the union should be consummated quietly.

The groom, Mr. Camp, while he has not been known in our city very long, has gained quite a host of friends by his pleasant, affable manners and his gentlemanly bearing.  He has taken from us one of our most highly cultivated young ladies which is sufficient to convince our people of his good taste and judgment.

The bride is known to every one in Cartersville.  Born and reared here she is loved by all who came in contact with her, for her many Christian virtues and actions.  She was the center of an admiring host of friends whom she had gained by her splendid traits of mind and character.  In society she was a leading spirit by reason of her pleasing accomplishments.  Her beauty, which is of the highest type, together with her admirable graces, caused her to be a most prominent figure in our social sphere, and her loss to our city is a great one in these respects.

Well, the time comes in all lives when the old home and place must be given up for these holy bonds of love, and we are indeed fortunate, if we can carry with us the hearty God-speeds of our own people as this couple certainly do.

The American extends to them the hearty and sincere hope that life for them may be full of hope and joy, and that fortune may smile on them and vouchsafe to them a safe and calm journey over life’s stormy sea.  And may God in His love shine into their hearts his unspeakable peace and joy which passeth all understanding, and at last grant them an abundant entrance into that blessed home above and then,
“Their spirits shall, with freshened power,
Rise up rewarded for their trust
In Him, from Whom all goodness springs,
And, shaking off earth’s soiling dust
From their emancipated wings,
Wander forever through those skies
Of radiance, where love never dies!”

Immediately after the marriage the couple left for New Orleans, where they go to visit the World’s Exposition.
