Description

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 220a of the [1896] S.W. Partridge & Co. reprint, 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."
