N.A. The artist has represented with historic fidelity the death of President Lincoln in a small room of the house near Ford's Theatre. At the head of the bed sits Gideon Welles, and near the foot, surgeon General Barnes, opposite to whom is Hugh McCullough, and Dr. Crane is counting the pulse. Bending over his father is Robert Lincoln, with Senator Summer at his right, and behind him a group--Major General Halleck, Judge Cartter and Postmaster General Dennison. In the foreground is Stanton with an open dispatch, at the opposite side of the room Colfax stands with crossed arms, and General Meigs bends over the bed, with General Augur at this side. [P. 9.]
