Alice holds onto Father Swaim's arm. Mr. Van Brunt comes in from the open doorway, carrying a satchel in front of his chest, looking down at a small Ellen, who has her hands clasped over her chest. Father Swaim, wearing his hat and his coat, carries a cane in his right arm. At the bottom of the depicted scene is the title, "The Old Letter Carrier".
