Description

This black and white frontispiece is from the 1879 Milner & Sowerby Reprint. It depicts Ellen's "friend", George Marshman, and Ellen together on the deck of the steamboat. Ellen is sitting on a bench, her ankles crossed and her hands clasped in her lap. Ellen has her head turned toward the lake with a forlorn face. George Marshman is standing, looking down at her, as he flips through his hymn book, reading it to give her comfort.
