Description

This black and white frontispiece is from the 1895 Willia L. Allison Co. "Allison's New Stand Library" Reprint. It depicts Ellen hugging her a bedridden Mamma goodbye, as Papa looks on, ready to take her down to the carriage that awaits. The image itself is framed with filigree, a leafy stalk decorating and surrounding the image, in a manner that reminds one of a postcard over a pressed plant. The title of the image is a quote from the scene "He is coming to take me away!"
