Historic marriage of Henrietta E. Sullivan and George H. Huddy, 1915.


Mrs. Henrietta E. Sullivan of Honolulu nei and Representative George H. Huddy of Hilo became one in the bond of marriage in the Throne Room at  midday this past Thursday.

For the first time in the history of the legislature of Hawaii nei, wed were the Honorable Dr. George H. Huddy in the covenant of marriage with Mrs. Henrietta E. Sullivan, in the throne room where the house of representatives meet, before the honorable members of both houses of the legislature, and before the friends and intimates of the newlyweds.

The one who bound the couple tightly together in the three-stranded cord of matrimony was Father Steven of the Catholic faith, and while the newlyweds were surrounded by their many friends, the priest spoke the words which made the two one, and it is only death that will part them.

After the marriage took place, hands were shook with aloha with congratulations from their friends, with prayers that they live their lives in happiness.
