Leap Year, 1884, New Westminster, BC


That the young Iadies of New Westminster have embraced the opportunity of it being leap year, as instanced by the number of marriages there lately. Leap year balls and picnics are frequent occurrences in the Royal City.

Seen in the Daily Colonist, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, 11 September, 1884, page 3.

(For June to September, 1884 there were apparently 24 marriages registered as in New Westminster District. Some may not have been in the city itself.)
