Atherton, Gertrude: A Daughter of the Vine. V1. 10 Jun 2011

Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (October 30, 1857 – June 14, 1948) was an American writer. Atherton, was an American Feminist and writer of social and historical fiction, much of it set in California. Although her reputation is founded primarily on her California fiction and essays, as well as her biography of Alexander Hamilton, Atherton also produced a number of Gothic stories, some of them, such as The Bell in the Fog, were considered significant achievements in the Gothic/supernaturalist tradition.

Excerpt
He referred to the lot catalogued as “No. 107,” and described as “Wedding-dress, shoes, etc.”
“Don’t sell that!” The very old-clo’ man remonstrated this time.
It seemed worse than the sale of the funeral wreath. The dress was heavy white satin—had been, that is; it was yellowed with time. The tiny shoes had evidently been worn but once.
