There’s One in Every Family

“Frank Smith, of Skaneateles, was married to Miss Della Stock, at the home of the bride’s parents. A large company was present. Among the wedding presents was a fine pig, alive, in a nice little box, and when the dance was in progress the music was reinforced by the pig, which would sing every time its tail was pulled, which was quite frequently. The pig was presented by the brother of the groom.”

— “A Skaneateles Wedding Gift” From the Utica-Observer, March 31. The New York Times, April 2, 1883
