Double Engagement Announcement
A San Bruno correspondent of the Times-Gazette has the following interesting in which two of Colma’s fairest daughters figure as prospective brides.
Rumor, which seems to be pretty well confirmed, is circulating in the social circles of the north end of the county, that a double engagement of more that usual interest is soon to be announced. The rumor affects the two handsome and engaging daughters of Supervisor Jas. T. CASEY. According to the report, Miss Elsie, the elder of the two daughters, is preparing to make formal announcement of her engagement to Frank BARRETT, a prominent contractor of San Francisco. At the same time Miss Margaret, who is also a strong social favorite of this section, will make known her engagement to Robert SAVAGE, a well-to-do farmer of Half Moon Bay and brother of William J. SAVAGE, principal of the Colma Vista Grande schools.
