Luck of Eden Hall (The)

.

A drinking cup, said to have been given to Miss Zoe Musgrave on her marriage with Mr. Farquharson, and still in Eden Hall, Cumberland. The tale is, that it was snatched surreptitiously from the fairies, who attached this threat to it:

“If that cup either break or fall,

Farewell the luck of Eden Hall.”
