"An international romance was brought to light today with the news of the secret marriage of Miss Belle Campbell of Quincy to Lieutenant Alfonso Sciacaluga of the Argentinean republic, now serving aboard the Argentine dreadnaught Rivadavia on her way to home waters. It was discovered when the bride went to the Argentine consulate in Boston to certificate the marriage certificate she obtained in Prince Edward Island. The wedding occurred after a most romantic courtship. Miss Campbell was employed at a Back Bay restaurant. Lieutenant Sciacaluga dined there. He was struck by her beauty and sought an introduction. There followed an ardent courtship." (newspaper clipping, 1914)
