The complete text beneath the image: “I looked at the lovely moonlight, pursuing these remembrances and these thoughts. A new ardour burnt in me. ‘No!’ I said to myself. ‘Neither relations nor friends shall prevail on me to falter and fail in my husband’s cause. The assertion of his innocence is the work of my life — I will begin to-night!’”
