A Private Wedding

We take the following from the Santa Rosa Democrat of Nov 24th:
No wedding has taken place recently in Santa Rosa where the whole affair came off so quietly as the one on Tuesday at the residence of our well-known and highly-esteemed citizen, Samuel Hutchinson, Esq. the contracting parties were Dr F H Ottmer, of Petrolia, Humboldt county, a physician of eminent attainments and an extensive practice, and Miss Anna, the oldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Hutchinson. Rev Dr Shepherd was the officiating clergyman. Invitations were extended only to the relatives and a very few intimate friends, yet this filled the house almost to the extent of its capacity. All the preparations had been kept so quiet that every visitor on his arrival was surprised a the beauty and magnificence of the floral decorations, but the surprise was greatest at the excellence and costliness of the wedding presents. Passing over many of the customary articles on such occasions, inspection showed that the best came last. Among these was an unpretended package which proved to be a large purse filled with gold coin, then least pretentious of all was a paper which on opening proved the best of all, a deed to the bride of 160 acres of the best land in Sutter county. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the newly-married couple started for their home in Humboldt county, amid a shower of rice and slippers, followed by the best wishes of all that know them.
