Illustration on Page 406a of the [1910] S.W. Partridge & Co., Ltd. Reprint, Depicting Ellen Comforted by Uncle Lindsay

40CIA_Partridge_1903_406A_ed_web.jpg

This illustration, appearing on page 406a of the [1910] S.W. Partridge & Co., Ltd. edition, depicts Ellen being comforted by her Uncle Lindsay as her aunt, Lady Keith, and her grandmother watch from across the table. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 407 of the text and reads, "'Come, come, what is the matter Ellen?'" The room where Ellen and her Uncle Lindsay are pictured is very proper with a table strewn with silver tableware, a fireplace, and a large painting hanging on the wall. While Ellen's Uncle Lindsay seems eager to pull Ellen close to him to comfort her, Ellen, although leaning in, also appears to be resisting as she looks almost as though she could be pulling away from him. This ambiguity highlights the developing relationship between the two as Ellen loves her Uncle Lindsay but finds it difficult to conform to the demands he places on her.
