A Cake of Ice


In the Lawrenceburgh Express, of the 7th inst., we find the following singular notice:

Married- On Thursday, January 30th, by Rev. Mr. Collard, Rev. James Brooking to Miss Sallie Craig, of Boone county, Kentucky.

The above couple were really married in the Ohio river, opposite the Rising Sun, on a cake of floating ice! Surely that was taking a cold start to matrimonial life.
