Bequest of Gordon N. Ray, 1987.

Title from item.
Drawing for an illustration for a work of fiction entitled "For Life and Fortune"; probably a serialized novel by Mrs. George Corbett, published under that title in the Lady's magazine ca. 1903.


Signed in pen and ink at lower left, "T.H. Robinson"; in pencil within the margin at foot: "For Life & Fortune"; and "Give it to me--".

From the library of Gordon N. Ray.

Drawing shows a young woman and a maid servant standing at the bedside of an older man; the woman is reaching for a glass held in the maid's hand that presumably holds medication to be administered to the ailing gentleman, and two bottles can be seen on the bedside table behind the two women.
