Description

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 236c of volume 1 of the 1853 G. P. Putnam & Company Illustrated Edition reprint, depicts Ellen and Alice in the snow storm as they try to make their way home after leaving Mrs. Vawse's. In the illustration, Alice wraps her arm around Ellen's shoulder and guides her as Ellen clings to Alice's cloak. Snow falls around them and the trees bend, creating a sense of movement and chaos in the illustration.
