Wedding & Baptism

According to Aethelred and Alexandra Eldridge, of Golgonooza, Primal Church of the Blake Recital, in Ohio, “A first wedding was consummated under the name of Wm. Blake at the foot of Mt. Nebo, near the Ohio [River], on the grounds of the Church of William Blake. Daphne Finnegan & Donald Kutschall were pronounced ‘Equal to the Poetic Task of Marriage’ by the Tongue of the Church, Aethelred Eldridge, April 27, 1974.” At the same place in June, Saffron Ann Henke was baptized “in Innocence outliving lasting life called strife.” Copies of the wedding and baptism ceremonies are probably still available from the Eldridges, c/o Golgonooza, R. R. 1, Millfield, Ohio 45761.
