Description

This black and white illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the [1898] A. L. Burt Company "The Home Library" reprint, depicts Alice telling John of her illness. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 422 and reads, "Alice's head found its old place on her brother's shoulder." In the illustration, Alice and John sit on a bench, Alice resting her head on John's shoulder, and John clasping Alice's hand. A young girl, possibly Ellen, stands behind them, looking out at the hills that extend into the distance behind the pair. Indistinct trees stand around the bench where Alice and John sit, framing the intimate scene.
