    • [From Alma Campbell's letter]
      ...the restless pioneer spirit soon drove him westward, and his journey ended at Wilmington Illinois, a thriving country town. Here he met and married Hannah Elizabeth Pennington, a girl of nineteen, who was a helpmeet indeed, and whose alert mind and ready sympathies shared his ideals and aspirations and rejoiced in his achievements...

      ...On June 16, 1869, she married Merritt Bates Campbell. The day was ushered in by a heavy frost, following several weeks of warm weather, and stoves were brought out and set up for the occasion. The wedding trip of this young couple took them as far as Bloomington and Springfield where they were caught in a heavy rain and father went to purchase an umbrella. Although characterized all his later life by extremely good and accurate taste, he was in his youth slightly color blind, and returned not with the green umbrella, which was wanted, but a beautiful blue one. And for the three days of their honeymoon they plodded around under this brilliant canopy.

      Their first meal in their own home was spread on a little drop leaf table, one of the pieces that father purchased at "secondhand" when he furnished the one room in which he slept and doctored his patients for three years.
