    "Guiseley - At a meeting of the Ancient Order of Foresters at the house of Mr Thom. Ward, the New Inn, it was resolved that the town should in some suitable manner have a day of rejoicing on the marriage of the Prince of Wales and a subscription has been entered into accordingly which promises well.
      The above Society (much to their credit) has taken the initiative in this matter from the fact that the Prince Consort "Albert the Good", Father of the Prince of Wales, was a distinguished brother of their honourable order".
