[Abraham H. Cannon]

After supper and the presenting of our recommends, Bros. Snow and Thatcher went into the south room of Bro. Johnson's house and about 8:30 o'clock married D. C. Young and M. P. Hardy, after which M. E. C. and I were united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Apostle Snow. Bro. Thatcher acting as a witness. I gave the former $10.00 for his kindness. We then made our beds in wagons, as there was no room in the house for us, and my bridal chamber was Bro. Snow's light wagon which was made quite comfortable with a feather bed and the curtains being all fastened down. Altogether our union has been rather romantic.
