1902. Rives was a member of one of America's oldest families and the wife of a prominent American diplomat. She authored The Modern and Complete Book of Etiquette. As a novelist she wrote several best sellers. Hearts Courageous begins: In the year of grace 1774, a climbing sun glowed above his Majesty's Colony of Virginia. It drank the opal mists of the marshes, flecked the fields into shadow-haunted cloth-of-gold, and so unrolled over the old middle plantation, where, a round century before, Bacon and his men had taken the oath against England, a drowsing, yellow mid-May afternoon.
