"It was mellow October weather in a deep green forest of the Argoät — where forests are deepest and greenest, and October days, when not veiled by warm showers of fine rain, mellower than anywhere else in the world." This tale by Marguerite Cunliffe-Owen, historical novelist, nonfiction writer, and poison-penned syndicated newspaper columnist, is => illustrated by four color plates of her watercolor drawings, including a frontispiece.
Before her emigration to America (caused by ruined fortunes in Europe), Margaret was the Countess Marguerite, daughter of Count Jules du Planty de Sourdis; she was most commonly known as La Marquise de Fontenoy or the Countess du Planty. The poems interspersed throughout this work and signed "M.M." are by Edward Forrester Sutton.
