    Notes 
    • Fashionable Marriage At Inverness - Yesterday afternoon Mr Charles Chilton, eldest son of Mr Thomas Chilton, The Elms, Gresford, was married in St Andrew's Cathedral, Inverness, to Miss Edith Brydon, youngest daughter of the late Dr William Brydon, C.B., who was the only survivor of the famous march from Cabul to Jelalabad. The marriage ceremony, which was witnessed by a large and fashionable assemblage, was performed by the Rev. Rowland Ellis, M.A., brother-in-law of the bride, assisted by the Rev. Spencer Rose. The bride was given away by her brother, Major Brydon, and the bridegroom was attended by Mr Thomas Chilton as best man. The luncheon took place in the Caledonian Hotel, and in the afternoon the newly married couple left for London en route for the Continent. The marriage presents were numerous.

      A Grim Reminiscence At A Wedding.
      One of the most terrible, as it is also one of the most thrilling, tales that history has to tell, is recalled by the announcement in the Scottish papers of Miss Edith Brydon's marriage in Inverness Cathedral. This lady's father was the famous Dr. Brydon, of the Afghan massacre of January, 1842 - the one survivor who, wounded and faint and weary, after a most perilous ride, reached Jellalabad to tell General Sale the piteous story of what had taken place in the Khyber Pass. They were 16,000-or, counting women and children, 26,000- who set out from Cabul on that ill-starred journey; and he was the only man who had escaped. Between the dark crags of Jugdullak the murderous Afghans had their fill of blood. The death trap ran with the gore of soldiers, camp followers, women, and children alike. Dr. Brydon alone escaped.
