    Wesley Asks Mr. Blalock for Sylvia's Hand

    Wesley Abernathy wanted to ask for Sylvia's hand. Sylvia's mother (Mary Ellen Hendricks Blalock) said that he had better ask Mr. Blalock (Alfred Moore Blalock). Wesley went outside and Alfred was hitching his horses to the wagon. Wesley asked if he could marry Sylvia and Alfred replied "Well if you can stand it, I can!" and then he drove off.
