Clipped From The Los Angeles Times
OLD LOVERS WED, In a simple wedding notice In this morning's Times, announcing a license issued to Lee U. Browning, aged 61, of Dodges Center, Minn., and Josephine C. Browning, aged 55. a resident of Long Beach, lies a thread of romance wound around with human love and sympathy that bespeaks life-long devotion and happy days to come. Both were boy and girl lovers in New York State, and later in Minnesota, but In a fit of pique, the girl married another Browning, a relative of the rejected suitor. The years passed and after twenty-five years of wedded life, Mrs. Browning was left a widow, thirteen years ago. In her sorrow, the once lover offered condolence by letter and a correspondence began with the Inevitable result of fanning anew, the fire of bygone love. Six months ago Browning was taken seriously 111 in ii,s home, back in Minnesota, and their intended union was postponed. A few weeks ago, when no improvement had been noticed, the aged sweetheart decided she could wait no longer and wrote imperiously that he should come to California's sunny clime and be nursed back to health by loving and tender ministrations. The sick man arrived on the overland yesterday and proceeding to the home of a Grand Army chaplain in Los Angeles, they were quietly married. They came at once to Long Beach to the home of the bride, where the work of restoration to health and happiness has begun. Mrs. Browning has lived In Long Beach ten years and is beloved for her quiet gentle ways.
