The employes of Messrs R. Wilson and Co. assembled at the Pier Hotel on Friday afternoon for the purpose of presenting Mr T. S. Culling with a memento on the occasion of his marriage. The address was read by Mr Thomas Hyndman as follows In view of your approaching marriage, and on behalf of the employes of Messrs K. Wilson and Co., permit me to present you with this writing desk, also a brooch and earrings for your intended bride, as a mark of our respect and esteem towards you. We also desire to convey to you our earnest wish for the happiness of yourself and her. We congratulate you upon the coming interesting ceremony, and express the hope that the state upon which you are about to enter may be long and prosperous. Mr Culling replied : I have to thank you from my heart for your kind wishes for the future happiness of my bride-elect and myself. The very handsome presents with which you accompany your congratulations will be treasured beyond measure by us, not for their intrinsic value only, but that they are given by my co-workers out of a spirit of goodwill and friendship. The majority of us have worked together for many years, and the relations between us have always been of the most agreeable and harmonious kind. I trust such may continue for many years to come. After drinking the healths of the bridegroom and intended bride in bumpers of champagne, the company separated.
