Hattam (formerly of Higher Bosavern, St. Just), and Miss Alice Maud Osborne, eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Os- borne, formerly of St. Levan and San- creen. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. T. Little. The bride, who was given away by her uncle, Mr. G. Barna- coat, was tastefully attired in a costume of cream serge, with Georgette hat of nigger and tomato. Mr. H. Hattam, cousin of the bridegroom, acted as best man. There was a large gathering at the church. Miss Osborne had been on the staff of the Cape Cornwall Girls' School for 10 1/2 years, and in addition to other friends, a large number of the teachers and scholars assembled in the church. Following the wedding a reception was held at Mrs. Davy's, Princess Street, where the guests returned for luncheon, afterwards enjoying a drive to the Land's End, in the car supplied by the West Penwith Motor Company. Mr. and Mrs. Hattam left for their honeymoon at 4.45 p.m. The bride's tra- velling costume was of grey tweed. Mr. H. T. Hattam served through the was with the Buckinghamshire Territorials, and was well known in St. Just; while Miss Osborne had been a most energetic worker in the Wesley Guild, and both were the recipients of some bautiful gifts, one much valued, being the case of silver tea-spoons, presented to the bride by the scholars and staff of the Cape Cornwall Girls' School. The happy pair found congratulatory telegrams awaiting them on their return from church, and have the best wishes of a large circle of friends for their future happiness.
