Here is one such illustration from this edition that I shew here in glorious color. It is called "Mr.B. Expostulating with Pamela." In this scene, Pamela is in the "summer-house" in the garden, at work with her needle (notice the white cloth tossed on the chair), the noble housekeeper, Mrs.Jervis, having just left her (notice the figure of a woman through the window on the right), when Mr.B. surprises her.
And he said, I'll do you no harm, Pamela; don't be afraid of me. I said, I won't stay. You won't, hussy! said he: Do you know whom you speak to? I lost all fear, and all respect, and said, Yes, I do, sir, too well!—Well may I forget that I am your servant, when you forget what belongs to a master.
