Married at Rome.

“At 3 o’clock Wednesday afternoon the marriage of Mr. James A. Hall to Miss Viola Wright was solemnized at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. M. Wright, just beyond north Rome.

The ceremony occurred in the parlor which was prettily decorated with flowers and ferns, and Dr. R. B. Headden impressively pronounced the words that made them husband and wife. The bride was dressed becomingly in a traveling costume and the groom wore the conventional black. About twenty-five friends and relatives were present. Dainty refreshments were served just after the marriage.

“The couple left on the 4:25 train for Atlanta. They will be at home on west Baker street. The bride, as Miss Wright, was a very highly educated and talented lady. She has been prominently identified with educational work for some years.

“Mr. Hall is state news editor of the Atlanta Journal and is one of Georgia’s brightest and most versatile journalists. He has the best wishes of his many Rome friends.”

The above is from the Rome Tribune. The bride taught in the public schools here a year or two ago and impressed all with her intelligence and refinement.
