Painted portrait of Elizabeth Arnold Poe


From an old miniature loaned by Mrs. M. L. Shew to Mr. Jno. H. Ingram



As printed in the original, this image has a long scratch that runs from the right side, up to and across the sitter’s chest. Because this imperfection is part of the reproduction of the image, and not the image itself, it has been removed from the present version.
