A quiet home wedding was celebrated Monday evening when Miss Margaret A. Lewis of 74 Bond street was married to John Laing, upholsterer for Livermore and Martin. The ceremony took place at 8 o’clock at the home of the bride, Rev. A. R. Pennell officiating. Only the immediate families were present as witnesses. The attendants were Miss Jennie Lewis and William Stevenson. Mr. and Mrs. Laing left after the ceremony for a two-weeks’ trip and on their return will live at 1 Sonoma place, where their flat is already furnished.
