"(Amer.) New York. Member of the National Academy. The reprimand. 23 x 19. The stern looking old man in the chair has administered a rebuke to the girl, who seems to have just returned from some forbidden excursion. Hesitating defiance is strongly Marked in her face; but that cold, unyielding eye under the hat will probably bring her to her senses, unless, forsooth, there is a beau in the question. Then, who can tell. This is a very powerful piece of character delineation."
