Administrator of the Government of the Province of Canada, and
Commander of Her Majesty's Forces therein, &c. &c. &c.

WHEREAS Her Majesty has been graciously pleased to authorize Me to grant
Licenses for the Solemnization of Marriages: AND WHEREAS

William Westover of Walsingham,
lumberman and Mary D. Culver of
Simcoe in the County of Norfolk,

are determined to enter into the Holy Banns of Matrimony, and are desirous of
having their Marriage publicly Solemnized ; in order that such their honest desires
may the more speedily have the due effect, and that they may be able to procure
the same to be lawfully Solemnized without Publication of Banns, I do hereby,
for good causes, give and grant this License of Faculty, as well to them the said
Parties contracting, as to all or every Person or Minister, duly ordained and
lawfully exercising his Ministry within that part of the Province of Canada
heretofore constituting the Province of Upper Canada, to Solemnize and perform
the same: Provided always, that by reason of any Affinity, Consanguinity, Pre-
contract, or any other lawful cause, there be no legal impediment in this behalf,
otherwise, if any fraud shall appear to have been committed, at the time of granting
this License, either by false suggestions or concealment of the truth, that then this
License shall be null and void, to all intents and purposes whatsoever.

Given under my Hand and Office Seal, at Quebec,
this tenth day of October
in the year of Our Lord, one thousand eight
hundred and fifty three and of Her Majesty's
Reign the sixteenth year.
