Front page – The TRIAL – the court for the trail of the assassination conspirators holds open sessions. Names of members of the Court, the Counsel and the Accused. The Deportment of the Prisoners. Testimony of Detective Lee and Lewis A Weichman (whose testimony is still argued to its truthfulness about Mrs. Surratt).

Appearance of the Prisoners – Excellent descriptions of Dr. Mudd, David C Harold, Lewis Payne, Edward Spangler, Michael O’Laughlin, Atzerott, Samuel Arnold, and Mrs. Surratt.

Interesting bios of all the conspirator’s backgrounds.

Harold laughed during Weichman’s testimony about him, as if in disbelief.
