This black and white illustration, appearing on page 82d of volume 1 of the 1853 G. P. Putnam & Company Illustrated Edition reprint, depicts Ellen and George Marshman on the steamboat as Ellen begins her journey to her Aunt Fortune's house. In the illustration, Ellen sits on a long bench with her hands in her lap, looking down sadly at the steamboat's deck. George Marshman stands nearby, looking down at her as he leans on a cane. Small waves rise in the water next to the steamboat and two men stand near the other end of the bench, appearing to have a conversation. Ellen's hat sits at her feet and a leather chair is placed behind the bench.
