The marriage of Anna Kathleen Brock, daughter of 
the late John F. and Mrs. Brock of St. Williams, to Frederick Wilson Montrose Ross of Simcoe, was solemnized in the Church of England at St. Williams 
by the rector, Rev. J. A. Bloodsworth on Saturday, 
18 Jan at 11.30 o'clock.

The church was very pretty in its winter decoration of evergreens and boquets of carnation and narcissus.

The bride, on the arm of her uncle, Dr. Andrew McInnes, entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march, played by Miss Jeanette [sic] Brock, sister of the bride.

The traveling suit of Amethyst broad cloth, with boquet of orchids and ferns, showed the bride's beautiful personality in a most unconscious [manner]. The toupe velvet hat with its tiny rose buds nestling closely, matched the furs of moleskin.

A high-noon luncheon was served at the home of the bride, which revealed the daintiness of the management in the culinary art.

Senator McCall and Dr. Andrew McInnes proposed toasts to the bride, the King, and country in these 
post-war times.

The presents were numerous, being both useful and practical.

Their honeymoon will be spent seeing the natural beauties of the North American continent.

Mr. and Mrs. Ross will reside in Simcoe, Ont.
