This black and white illustration, appearing on page 274a of the 1853 G. Routledge & Co. reprint, depicts Ellen, Alice, and John about to get on the sleigh that will take them to the Marshman's for Christmas. John is carrying Ellen to put her in the sleigh, with Alice and Margery talking behind them. The sleigh's driver stands waiting in the background. Captain Parry(?) appears prepared to jump into the sleigh, and the horse Prince Charlie is hitched to the sleigh. A caption below the illustration reads, "Starting with the Sleigh," referencing the scene from page 274 of the novel. The trees around the sleigh give a pleasant natural frame to the scene. The name of the illustrator, Dalziel, is inscribed in the lower-left corner of the illustration.

This illustration, appearing on page 222a of the [1910] S.W. Partridge & Co., Ltd. edition, depicts Alice, Ellen, and John arriving at the Marshman's. Alice, wrapped in a heavy shawl, is being greeted by Miss Sophia in a formal room while Ellen and John stand behind her, watching the encounter. Through the open door that Alice, Ellen, and John entered through, the back of a sleigh is visible as it sits surrounded by snow. The warmth of the encounter is contrasted with the winter weather outside the home. Below the illustration a caption quotes a sentence from page 223 and reads, "She kissed Alice a great many times, seeming very glad to see her."
