Lovely painting

George Elgar Hicks, Woman's Mission: Companion of Manhood, 1863.
Looks like he's received news of a death as the envelope dropped to the floor and the letter are bordered in black.  I love this picture of husband and wife...of having someone who will stand by you through both good and hard times.  The beauty of marriage.
