Merced Express, October 24, 1903

Capt Huffman Engaged.

The engagement is announced of Miss Edna Cook, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Cook of 3130 Washington street, to Captain Edwin Towne Huffman. The young people's secret is out after a clever concealment of several years, and now they are wondering now. How ever, Captain Huffman has been a sailor long enough to know that salt water and secrets are apt to ooze, and should not express surprise. Rather, they should congratulate themselves that up to now it has been only whispered among the suspicious.

Miss Cook is a sweet and attractive girl, with a bright face. A keen sense of humor is declared in her ready and contagious laughter. She has a host of friends, who are wishing her all happiness and who will steal this opportunity to congratulate the fortunate bride and groom to-be.

Captain Huffman is interested in the Simpson Lumber company and has charge of a ship, the Novelty, a compliment to so young a man. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Huffman of 2100 Broadway. He has followed the sea for some years.

The date of the wedding is yet indefinite, and whenever it occurs will be a quiet affair, at which only the two families and their closest friends will be present.
