DAY-ALEWYN. On April 8th, at Christ Church, Lausanne, Switzerland, by the Rev H Campbell, MA, Alfred Dineley Day, youngest son of the late Mr and Mrs John Day, of Norchard House, Harrogate, to Dido Cecile, second daughter of the late Colonel Chevalier Alewyn and Josin, Countess de Limbourg-Stirum, of Amersfoort, Holland.

Wednesday Gossip

The friends of Alf Dineley Day (late private in the RAMC) will be interested to see in our public notices that he has just been married to a lady he met in Switzerland. Day has just been spending three months there in order to regain his health, which was seriously impaired by the typhoid fever he contracted when nursing prisoners in Germany. The after-effects of the illness are almost invariably serious and recurrent. His medical advisors in the Army impressed upon him the necessity of at least twelve months' rest and abstention from business. His medical advisor at home confirmed that necessity, but in his anxiety to return to his business in Princes Square (for he is a member of the firm of John Day and Sons, estate agents), he disregarded these injunctions, and returned to work, but further absences were necessitated. He was finally ordered to Switzerland, where he has spent about four months. He was very ill during the first period of his stay, but owing to the glorious sunshine and fine air he is now fit and trim, and hopes to come back to business life endowed with fresh vigour in about a fortnight, when he will be welcomed by his many friends and acquaintances.
