HENRY WILLIAM HERBERT.
Mr. Herbert married his
first wife, under circumstances of peculiar interest.
Mr. Joseph A. Scoville, subsequently an editor of
the Picayune newspaper, was at the moment a
rich and influential merchant. He solicited Her-
bert to accompany him to Bangor, Maine, where
he was to espouse a young and beautifu woman,
the daughter of the Mayor. Herbert consented, and
made the journey, but in lieu of acting as grooms-
man, as had been intended, he cut out from his friend,
and espoused the lady himself.
