wit in the wedding announcement

Married, at Bridgewater, December 16, 1778, Captain Thomas Baxter, of Quincy, aged sixty-six,
to Miss Whitman, of the former place, aged fifty-seven,
after a long and tedious courtship of forty-eight years,
Which they both sustained with uncommon fortitude.

 Married, Solomon Payne, Esq., of Canterbury, Connecticut, to Miss Sarah Barker, of Concord, in 1825: Some females fall in love with wealth,
Some with a lovely swain;
But Sarah, in the bloom of health
Takes to her bosom Payne.
