From "Princess Goldenhair,"
in My Book of Favorite Fairy Tales
by Edric  Vredenburg; Illustrated by Jennie Harbour

     Inside the grotto there is a deep pit into which you must descend, it is full 

of toads, scorpions, and serpents. At the bottom of this pit there is a little cave 

where flows the fountain of beauty and health. Positively I must possess the

water; all who wash in it, if they are beautiful, continue so always, if they are

ugly they become beautiful; if they are young they remain young, if they are

old they regain their youth.
