Having thus rovlded for a sure and

these specific facts, was to Inmre n clear
and unobstructed passage to the locality
of the victim by such an arrangement of
the chulrl and sofas as would place the oth

Shortly after they entered the fatal box
the President seated himself lu the chair
designed for blm by the assassin. Mrs.
Lincoln took one near him, Miss Harrs
the one at the opposite corner, fronting the

self npon the tola, a few feet behind MI'S

the Presldent.lmd been told by Mrs. Lincoln
to remain near the box as he might be

The wound was on the left side of Ihe head,

Imbedded In the anterior lobe ol Ihe right
