Commentary

As described in the Springfield Republican: "the subject [is] a square-roofed white house, with light green blinds, at a corner where the fence comes down, and against it leans a woman in neighborly gossip. Sturdy old maples, in the yard and outside, produce the true homeliness of the scene as a characteristic Yankee sketch,--but the sweet, strong, magnetic grace which makes it familiar is the melting tide of the ardent summer air that sifts through and fills beneath the gentler shade of the maples."
