A caption below the illustration reads, "The Old Newsman," referencing the scene from page 333 of the novel. In the illustration, Ellen watches the approaching letter carrier anxiously, waiting for a letter from her mother, as she stands on a grassy path with her arm around a fence post. The letter carrier emerges from a row of twisted trees on a white horse, carrying a bag of letters. The name of the illustrator, Dalziel, is inscribed in the lower-left corner of the illustration.
