Excerpt from The Youth's Companion, Vol. 2: A Juvenile Monthly Magazine Published for the Benefit of the Puget Sound Catholic Indian Missions; June, 1882
This charming virgin is clothed with fairy-like elegance; her robe of light green is dotted here and there with diamond dew-drops, and her brow is crown ed by a garland of sweet violets and primroses - her first gift to earth. How joyfully nature hails the fair corner, who brings with her so many graces.
The streams, released from their icy fetters, Spring 'on their unobstructed way, murmuring playfully and rejoicing over their unexpected delivery. The sun, long obscured by the gloomy clouds of winter, comes forth victoriously he breathes down on Flora's lovely treasures, and the salutary touch perfects the work which the Goddess Spring had begun.
