MR. CHART’S DIAMOND WEDDING
Congratulations from Croydon Bench

On taking his seat on the Bench at the Croydon County Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, the chairman, Sir Arthur Spurgeon, said their deputy chairman, Mr. R. M. Chart, was elsewhere celebrating an anniversary that came seldom in a man’s life. It was his diamond wedding celebration, and, added Sir Arthur, “I am sure my colleagues will permit me to express publicly how delighted we are that one who has been with us for so many years and has now reached the age of eighty-two, should be able to celebrate his wedding, which took place in 1873. We will send him our warmest congratulations.:

The following telegram was dispatched by the magistrates: “Your colleagues on the Croydon County Bench send warmest congratulations to bride and bridegroom of January 21.”
