Narrative

"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)

In reference to a recent article which appeared in a recent issue of the Guardian, entitles Romance of an Island Girl, the lady referred to is the only daughter of Mr and Mrs John J. Campbell of Long River, and was married to Lieutenant Sciacaluga in June last, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. George Sutherland, minister of the Kensington and Long River Presbyterian Churches. Mrs. Sciacaluga is expected to arrive in a few days to spend the winter with her parents in Long River, Lieutenant Sciacaluga being now on this way with his ship to Buenos Ayres, from whence he will return in the spring.
