Excerpt from The Modernist
A fascinating scene it always is, but made especially so on this particular morning in May, when the guests on the piazzas watched with lively interest a party mounting their horses, in front of The Laurel-in-the Pines, and starting Off for a ride through the woods and across the country.
The party consisted of Mr. Charles Seton, his son Eugene and two daughters, Helen and Charlotte, of New York; Mr. Herbert Gates, his son Ralph and daughter Doro thy, also New Yorkers; Miss Mason and Miss Stanley, of Philadelphia, nieces of Mrs. Seton; and Mr. Norman Dudley, an Englishman, living at present in New York.
