This illustration, appearing on page 304 of the 1888 J.B. Lippincott & Co. edition, depicts Mr. Lindsay observing Ellen. A shadowed Mr. Lindsay stands in the doorway to a darkened room, where Ellen is sitting on the floor of the room, resting against the seat of a chair and looking out a window. She wears a pale dress, her fingers are laced on the seat cushion, and her glowing, yet melancholic face is turned towards the incoming light. Beneath the illustration, in a cursive script, is the name of the artist, Frederick Dielman, and the line "Mr. Lindsey stood still at the door," from page 304 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. This illustration first appeared on page 544b of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Co. "New Edition" Reprint (see 9CIA).
