Description

This color illustration, appearing on page 118a of the 1887 James Nisbet & Co. Golden Ladder Series reprint, depicts Nancy finding Ellen at the brook. Ellen, wearing a red dress that stands out against the green field behind her, sits next to the water with her hands in her lap as Nancy stands behind Ellen looking down at her. A line of trees extends across the background of the illustration and several bushes surround Ellen and Nancy. A caption below the illustration reads "The Charmed Spot," reflecting the gentleness and stillness conveyed in the illustration as Ellen sits quietly by the brook.
