Virtue is rewarded; A booth in Vanity Fair

William Makepeace Thackeray

Wood engraving

c.1861

Illustration for Chapter 67, Thackeray's Vanity Fair:

Becky "is always having stalls at Fancy Fairs for the benefit of hapless beings. Emmy, her children, and the Colonel, coming to London some time back, found themselves suddenly before her at on of these fairs. [Becky] cast her eyes down demurely and smiled as they started away from her."
