This black and white illustration, appearing on page 196a of the 1892 J. B. Lippincott Company "New Edition" reprint, depicts Ellen and Alice caught in a snow storm as they search for Captain Parry, who has been lost during the journey down the mountain as the two attempt to return home from Mrs. Vawse's. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 196 and reads, "In a few minutes he came in sight." Alice and Ellen both clutch at their dresses and shawls to keep themselves warm as the snow and wind blows around them. Ellen looks back helplessly, surrounded by snow-covered trees as Alice beckons to Captain Parry, who stands barely visible on the snowy path. The caption of the illustration provides some relief to the hopelessness of the situation as the viewer of the image realizes that Alice and Ellen have finally discovered what they were searching for and can now continue their journey down the mountain.
