John Hancock Wedding Announcement -
This evening was married at the seat of Thaddeus Burr, Esq., at Fairfield Conn., by the Reverend Mr. Eliot, the Hon. John Hancock Esq., President of the Continental Congress, to Miss Dorothy Quincy, daughter of Edmund Quincy Esq. of Boston. Florus informs us that 'in the second Punic war, when Hannibal besieged Rome and was very near making himself master of it, a field upon which part of his army lay, was offered for sale, and was immediately purchased by a Roman, in a strong assurance that the Roman valor and courage would soon raise the siege.' Equal to the conduct of that illustrious citizen was the marriage of the Honorable John Hancock Esq., who, with his amiable lady has paid as great a compliment to American valor, and discovered equal patriotism, by marrying now while all the colonies are as much convulsed as Rome when Hannibal was at her gates.
