High WASP Weddings, The Age of Innocence
Then there's this, from another, earlier wedding, of another one of my grand-somethings at the turn of the century. What do you think, is the Times tongue in cheek here? The "usual fall"? The "number of which was very large"?
I like the idea that the Times was teasing gently.
Although all this is true, I know it doesn't matter. Fun to dig around anyway. Have you ever noticed when people hit 50 they suddenly become much more interested in their genealogy?
