Through the Earth/Epilogue


THE following wedding announcement, which appeared in the New York "Herald" for June 5, 1999, is given here in full, as it will probably interest all who have read the story of our hero's extraordinary adventures.

The marriage of Miss Flora Curtis to Mr. William Swindon took place yesterday evening, at the home of the bride's father. Relatives and a few intimate friends were invited to attend the ceremony, and an informal reception followed.

The bride was attired in a handsome gown of white silk trimmed with duchess lace, and a tulle veil, caught up with orange blossoms and a diamond pin of beautiful design, a present from Dr. Joshua Giles, the well-known scientist.

Mr. William Swindon is known the world over for his astonishing trip through the earth. His literary work has also attracted great attention, and has earned for its author a well-deserved fame.

The young couple, after their honeymoon, propose to come to the United States, where Mr. Swindon intends to take up his residence. Let us hope, in the words of the good old fairy-tales, that the bride and groom will u live happily together ever afterward."
