A bride worth having.
--The Rockingham (Va.) Register
publishes the marriage of Miss Lucy F. Roller
, the daughter of a wealthy farmer in that county, and adds:
She was what we would call "an independent girl," sure enough.
Her bridal out fit was all made with her own hands, from her beautiful and elegant straw hat down to the handsome garters upon her feet!
Her own delicate hands spun and wove the material of which her wedding dress and travelling cloak were made; so that she had nothing upon her person when she was married which was not made by herself!
Nor was she compelled by necessity or poverty to make this exhibition of her independence.
She did it for the purpose of showing to the world how independent Southern girls are.
