This illustration, appearing on page 296d of Volume One of the 1888 J.B. Lippincott Co. reprint, depicts Ellen reading to Grandma in front of the hearth. Grandma has her knitting in her lap but appears to be ignoring it and is instead watching Ellen. Ellen is sitting on a small stool in front of her, leaning over The Bible laying across her lap. Beneath the illustration, in a cursive script, is the name of the artist, Frederick Dielman, and the line "As soon as she was set free Ellen brought her Bible," from page 297 of the text. At the very bottom of the page, in the same script, is the title of the book along with the volume and page number.
