Excerpt from Her Ladyship

House, were noticeable. Through this valley, the Shenandoah river dashed angrily along, its high waters raging within a pair of tawny banks, looking in the dis tance like an enormous orange-colored serpent, gliding with many tortuous turnings and sinuous twistings among the green fields, until hidden from sight by an out-crop ping spur of the mountains.

Belvoir Castle, for so it was called by the people of the surrounding country, had originally been built in the year 1750. Twenty-four years later, the house was almost destroyed by fire, communicated, it is supposed, by sparks from the camp-fires of troops bivouacked near, who, under, command of my Lord Dunsmore, were on their way to punish some hostile tribes of Indians in the far of? Western wilderness. Fortunately, the main build ing Was saved, and afterwards remodelled by some of the heirs of its former owner, Lord Thomas Fairfax. At the time our story opens, 1863, the castle, notwithstanding its age, was still a very handsome and imposing structure. Facing the West, and perched high above the valley, it occupied one of the most charming and picturesque sites in the county.
