A man leads a horse through the snow, at night. He holds on to his hat with one hand.

The very spot where the Snorkers held a pic-nic. Oh! didn’t the ladies cry out in one voice, “I could live in such a charming place for ever, if only—” At the self-same pic-nic, Tilbury Pawkins plighted his troth to Amelia Softspoon. Now they are married, and Amelia has begun trying to live in the “charming place,” and Pawkins is going home to a damp cottage and a rheumatic wife as blithely as a newly-married man should. (p. 309)

At the larger sizes, you can see how the engraver has achieved the effect of a snow-storm at night. This engraving was made for Fun magazine.
