Price –Wilson
Important Matrimonial Event Announced For June.

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Ford Price, of Cartersville, have announced the engagement of their daughter, Harriet to Mr. Wharton Otey Wilson, of Atlanta.  The wedding will be a beautiful event of June, taking place at the First Methodist church in Cartersville and followed by a reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Price.

The announcement is of as much interest locally as in Cartersville, Miss Price having spent most of her young ladyhood here with her uncle and her aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Truitt.  On both sides she represents prominent Georgia families. Her maternal grandfather, Judge Nathan Land, was one of the most distinguished beloved men of his section of the state, while Colonel Hawkins F. Price, her paternal grandfather, was a man of distinction politically and socially, and a gentleman of the old school in the most delightful sense of the term.

Miss Price is a young woman of talent and beauty, and has in Atlanta scores of friends interested in the announcement of the engagement.

Mr. Wilson is one of the most prominent young lawyers of the city, and is exceedingly popular here socially.  He is a graduate of the University of Virginia and has in Atlanta a wide family connection.  –Atlanta Journal.

“Cherokee Club and Library Notes.”

The marriage of Miss Hattie Price to Mr. Wharton Nelson, of Atlanta, will take from the Cherokee club one of its most charming members.

Miss Price is a lovely young woman deservedly popular in social and club circles.

Mr. Wilson, her fiancé, is one of the most prominent young lawyers of Atlanta and is in every way worthy of the fair bride he has won.

The Cherokee club adds its best wishes to the countless number which have been wafted to the popular young people.

[There seems to be some confusion about the name of the groom in this article.]
