The marriage of William D. Green, of Tulare, Cal., to Miss Mora Pierce, of Pinetta, Gloucester county, brought about by a two-years’ correspondence through an advertisement in a farmer’s paper, smacks of romance. The groom saw an invitation in the paper to correspond with its subscribers by means of post-card views, and he accepted with the above results.
The groom is a large fruit grower in California and the bride is the only daughter of J.M. Pierce, of Pinetta. They were married at the home of the bride in Gloucester by her former pastor, Elder William E. Wiatt. Miss Bertha Fuller, of Baltimore, played the wedding march, and Miss Florence Fethe acted as bridesmaid. The happy couple left at once for Visalia, Cal., their future home.
