Alice Bradley Haven, an American authoress, born in Hudson, N. Y., Sept. 13, 1828, died at Mamaroneck, N. Y., Aug. 23, 1863. Her maiden name was Emily Bradley, and while a school girl she sent, under the pseudonyme of Alice G. Lee, many attractive sketches to the Philadelphia "Saturday Gazette," edited by Joseph C. Neal. Their correspondence resulted in her marriage with Mr. Neal in 1846, and at his request she assumed the name of Alice, and thereafter wrote under the pseudonyme of Cousin Alice. On his death in 1847 she took the editorial charge of the " Gazette," and conducted it for several years, contributing at the same time poems, sketches, and tales to other periodicals. She published a volume in 1850 entitled "The Gossips of Rivertown, with Sketches in Prose and Verse," but is more generally known by her series of juvenile stories, as "Helen Morton," "Pictures from the Bible," "No such Word as Fail," "Patient "Waiting no Loss," "Contentment Better than Wealth,"Airs not Gold that Glitters," " Out of Debt out of Danger," "The Coopers," and many others.
In 1853 she was married to Mr. Samuel L. Haven. Her biography has been published under the title "Cousin Alice, a Memoir of Alice B. Haven" (New York, 1865).
