Fiance, Enthusiast on Biblical Archaeology, Long Leader in British Politics.
[[line]]

Mrs. Mary Battey Bonney of 449 Park Avenue, daughter of Mrs. George Magruder Battey and widow of George Bonney, will be married to Sir Charles Marston, a leader in British politics and industry for many years, this afternoon in the chapel of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church. Mrs. Bonney and Sir Charles obtained their marriage license yesterday at the Municipal Building. No announcement had been made here publicly of their engagement.

Mrs. Bonney, a daughter of the late George M. Battey, is a grand-daughter of the Late Dr. Robert Battey, internationally known surgeon, and of the late Judge Thomas Nixon Van Dyke of Tennessee. She is a sister of Miss Adrienne Battey of this city and Atlanta, Ga., of Dr. Hugh I. Battey and of George M. Battey, author and journalist of Shanghai. Mrs. Bonney was born in Rome, Ga., and attended Shorter College and Agnes Scott College. She is the mother of George Bernard Bonney of Toronto and Holbrook Van Dyke Bonney of Elkins, W. Va.

Sir Charles, whose home is Elmdene at Camden Park, Tunbridge Wells, England, is an enthusiast on biblical archaeology and has written two books on a theme that has become his life mission, "New Knowledge about the Old Testament" and "New Bible Evidence," both substantiating the Bible by scientific discoveries. Sir Charles was instrumental in financing the archaeological expeditions of Sir Flinders Petrie, Professor John Garstang and Dr. Stephen Langdon.

He is a son of the late John Marston and is a direct descendant of Robertus de Marston, who held the Manor of Marston in Lincoln County, England, during the reign of King Edward I. He had been married twice previously. His first wife, the former Miss Louise Isabel Johnson of Ithaca, N.Y., died in 1921. The following year Sir Charles married Mrs. Ruth Miller Bayne, widow of George Bayne of New York. She died last December in St. Luke's Hospital here. Sir Charles was created a Knight Bachelor by King George in 1926 for his services to the Conservative party.

Duke and Duchess, on Way Back to England, Pay Brief Visit.
[[line]]
Special Cable to THE NEW YORK TIMES.
HAMILTON, Bermuda, April 3. - The Duke and Duchess of Kent, on their way back to England from their West Indian honeymoon, made a final stop at a New World port today, debarking from a special tender at the ancient town of St. George's and spending an hour and a half touring the east end of the island. They were met by the Governor, Sir Thomas Astley Cubitt.

The Duke had wirelessed ahead from the steamer Orduna that he wished to forego an official reception and to be treated as a private passenger. He and the Duchess were taken in a typical cotton-parasolled Bermuda carriage to Crystal Cave, where a stalactite was presented to the Duchess by H. Bernard Wilkinson, owner of the cave and a member of the Bermuda Parliament. The only other time a stalactite was broken from the roof of the cave was in 1920 on the occasion of the Prince of Wales's visit.

The Duke and Duchess embarked after walking half way back to St. George's, a distance of a mile and a half. They waved from the rail of the tender to hundreds of school children gathered on the pier who were waving flags and cheering.
