Excerpt from Arsareth: A Tale of the Luray Caverns

On a summer afternoon in the year 1830, a young girl stood, fishing-rod in hand, by the side of a brook in one of Virginia's loveliest valleys, the Valley of Luray. No fish had disturbed her hook for more than an hour, yet still the cork floated lightly on the stream.

She was not fishing, but dreaming; indulging in that favorite pastime of girls of her age - a day-dream.

And truly the day was one to dream in. One of those glorious days in mid-summer when the mountains seem asleep in a robe of misty light; the murmur of insect life floats lazily on the air and all nature seems pervaded with the soft influences of sloth and repose.

This Virginia girl, over whose golden hair twenty summers have shed their warmth, is deserving of our attention.

While she stands looking on the stream at her feet, but observing no feature of brook or field or sky, we will take the liberty to study her, for if there ever was a girl whose face was an index of her soul, that girl was Alice Davis.

In that State, noted for its graceful girls and stately ladies, Alice would not be called beautiful; but on a second look there would be something manifest in her, such a forceful character looking out of every feature, as cannot be expressed by the word "beauty" even as it is far above it.
