It was through the mother of Voegtlin finding a letter in his pocket addressed to "My Dear Husband" that the fact the two had been married first became known to the parents of the two. Then they confessed to having gone to Moorestown on January 21, where they were married by a minister. While the parents of the bride were somewhat chagrined at the secret marriage because of teh extreme youth of their daughter, she has been forgiven and Mr. and Mrs. Voegtlin are living happily in Trenton
