175 years ago today - Apr 30, 1842

After announcing the marriage of "Mr. Wm. Warren, to Mrs. Catharine Fuller, both of this city," Nauvoo's Wasp (edited by William Smith) quoted these lines of poetry:

Till Hymen brought his life delighted hour,

There dwelt no peace in Eaden's [Eden's] rosy bower.
