3UVA_HodderStoughton_1896_528_web.jpg

This black and white illustration appearing on page 528, of the 1896 Hodder and Stoughton Reprint, depicts Ellen sitting slightly removed from a little table and looking outside a very large window over the estate. Her posture is slightly hunched, as if to convey that she is carrying a large, emotional burden. Her expression is wistful as she contemplates and compares her new life with the Lindsay's with her life in America. This illustration first appeared on page 528, of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Co. "New Edition" Reprint (see 9CIA).
