Married in Massachusetts.

The Amherst (Mass.) Record of the 18th contains the following:
A pleasant company of about thirty-five assembled at the home of Mr. George Montague on Lincoln avenue, to witness the marriage of his grand-daughter, Kate Ives Hall, to Rev. William C. Porter of Pernambuco, Brazil. The parlors were artistically decorated with hydrangeas, mountain ash, ferns and golden-rod, while the bride gowned in her grandmotherís wedding dress looked very lovely. Among the relatives and intimate friends present were Mr. and Mrs. George I. Hall of Rochester, N. Y. father and mother of the bride, Dr. and Mrs. Bates of Baltimore, and Mrs. Wm. Dickinson of Worcester. Dr. Julius H. Seelye performed the ceremony in his usual impressive manner, a ring being used. After a delicate repast, and with the hearty congratulations of the company, the newly married couple left amid showers of rice, for a brief wedding trip. Mr. and Mrs. Potter sail for their new home in Pernambuco, Brazil, on next Wednesday, and the best wishes of a host of friends go with them to their field of labor. Many and valuable were the tokens of love and esteem which the bride will carry with her to her new home, as pleasant reminders of the dear friends she leaves behind.

The bride is a niece of our townsman Mr. H. H. Hall.
