Wood engraving

Thomas Hardy's "Mastr John Horseleigh, Knyght" McClure's Magazine (New York) 1 (July 1893): 139.

The picture realizes Edith's account of the wedding: "Our marriage has to be kept secret for a while; it was done privily for certain reasons, but we were married at church like honest folk—afore God we were, Roger—six months after poor Stocker's death." (bottom p. 138)
