Description

This full color frontispiece, appearing in the [1885] Ward, Lock & Co. "Home Treasure Library, Complete Edition" reprint, depicts Ellen arriving at Thirlwall. In the illustration, Ellen is standing on the steps before the door to the Thirlwall shop, and her luggage rests behind her on the top steps. She is wearing a blue dress and blue shawl, red and white stripped stockings, and a tan hat with white feathers on top. She is clutching her purse in one hand and her other hand is extending towards her face in a worried fashion. She is looking off to the right. An inscription below the illustration reads, "What was to be done next."
