From Anthony Trollope's Framley Parsonage with six illustrations by Sir John Everett Millais. First serialised 1860-1861 in Cornhill Magazine then published as a book in 1861. [Since the original drawing would have been destroyed by the wood-engravers, who pasted it on the woodblock, this must be a watercolor copy made for sale — GPL].
