by Ethan Allen Hitchcock, 1863
A young girl was once riding in a coach with her master and mistress through a large wood ; and when they came to the middle of it, a band of robbers rushed out of a thicket, and killed all whom they found. Thus all were killed except the maid, who had jumped in terror out of the coach and hidden herself behind a tree.

Is indeed to prepare the way for sorrow,
for all who love must be parted,
by the great appointment.
