The "Editor of the Gardener's Monthly " was made happy by the receipt of an invitation card to attend the marriage ceremony between Miss Jennie Wright and Mr. Alex. E. Patton, of Ennis & Patton, of Lyons, Iowa, on December 27th. It was pleasant to be thus kindly remembered, and though it is twelve hundred miles away, we advise our good friends not to tempt us in that manner too often, or we may be there one of these times. We represent so many, who esteem the firm of which Mr. Patton is a member, that as "Editor," we feel that in a sort of representative capacity we can offer a host of congratulations at this new evidence of happiness and prosperity.
