July 20, 1889 — We are glad to learn that the prospects for a prosperous season at the Inn are highly favorable. Up to this time an average number of visitors have been to Luray, and already the engagements for the later summer months have been usually large.
In October soon after the meeting of the Knights Templar Conclave in Washington, at which there will be perhaps 20,000 members of this distinguished order present, it is expected that several hundred will visit the Caverns of Luray, and remain several days at the Inn.
