Illustrations for "The Passing of Sister Barsett"

When "The Passing of Sister Barsett" originally appeared in Cosmopolitan (13:59-65) in May 1892, it included three illustrations by Henry Sandham (1842-1912). Sandham was a painter and illustrator, born in Montreal and working in Canada until 1880. Then he moved to England and again to Boston, where he did portraits and history painting. (Source: Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors, and Engravers, G. B. Optiz, editor. Poughkeepsie, NY: Apollo, 1986, p. 809.) The Cosmopolitan opening paragraph design is followed by the three Sandham illustrations.
