__d_ THE MARRIAGE OF PROFESSOR EAWGETT, M.P. A marriage took place on Tuesday at Aldeburgh, Suffolk, which will be regarded with special interest, in- asmuch as it united in wedlock no less distinguished a as personage than Henry Fawcett, Esq., M.P., Professor of Political Economy at Cambridge,, and Miss Millieent Garrett, daughter of Newson Garrett, Esq., of Alde- house, Aldeburgh, and sister to the gifted lady, Miss Elizabeth Garrett, L.S.A., who is General Medical At- tendant of the St. Mary's Dispensary for Women and Children in London, and one of the few ladies who have successfully undergone the study-and toil necessary to. gain a diploma as a medical practitioner. Inconsequence of a recent bereavement in the family of the bride, the I wedding was not marked either by the family or towns- people with so much rejoicing as would otherwise have.been exhibited. Whatever manifestations of joy the inhabi- tants were not precluded from making they made with a warm and cordial feeling, and nothing could be more evident than the desire of all that the marriage may result in the fulfilment of all the happiness which is presaged for it. A number of flags Were hoisted in honour of the event. The happy pair arrived at the parish church at half-past ten o'clock, and by that time the building was densely crowded, and a large number of spectators were assembled outside. The bride, who is young, looked very lovely. She was attired in white satin, wreath of orange blossoms, and tulle veil, and was attended by four bridesmaids—Miss Agnes Garrett, Miss Josephine Garrett, her sisters Miss Rhoda Garrett, her cousii-i and Miss Fawcett, sister to the professor. lvIr. and Mrs. Newson Garrett, the father and mother of the bride, and Mr. and Mrs. Fawcett, the father and mother of the bridegroom, were also present, with several mem- bers of the Garrett family, and Mr. Tom Fawcett, brother I to the bridegroom. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Rev. H. T. Dowler, M.A., vicar of Aldeburgh, I assisted by the Rev. Jas. Porter, fellow and tutor of St. Peter's College, Cambridge. The prayers were fervently joined in by those present. At a quarter past three o'clock the newly-married couple took leave of their friends. Their departure was affecting, and they drove off under a perfect shower of slippers from the house- hold, every member of which wished them a heartfelt God speed." Professor and Mrs. Fawcett left the Campsey Ashe Station for their town residence, 42, Bessborough-gardens, London. In the drawing-room and dining-room at Aide-house a very large number of wedding presents from the friends of the bride and bridegroom were to be seen. The most valuable in a pecuniary sense was a massive and costly repeating chronometer, which was presented to Professor Fawcett by the resident fellows of Cambridge University; and an exquisitely beautiful silver inkstand, formed from the flower of a water-lily, the base for' which con- sisted of lily leaves charmingly arranged. This was presented to Professor Fawcett by one of his constituents, Mr. H. Willett. I. I
