Description
Full length silhouette of woman (Sarah) facing right. Dressed in 19th century style with long dress, hair up in bun, holding a fan. Black on light paper, no frame. Written on back in pencil: "Before 1833 (top left) -- Mrs. Newcomb (bottom right)" "I send you this profile of Sarah, Dear Susan, not for the beauty, but because I think it will give you pleasure to see something that will remind you of her. I hope you will not become so strongly attached to housekeeping in Nova Scotia that you will find it difficult to make Sarah the visit you promised her when she is settled in her little parsonage. Yours sincerely, E.K. Newcomb." Also on back: colored pencil drawing of a young girl's head wearing an orange cap and dark hair.
