The print is a reproduction of page 182 of Punch, a nineteenth century British satirical magazine. On the page, a cartoon entitled "Trying" is printed that shows a photographer taking a photograph of another man. Below the cartoon, the first half of a poem appears. The poem is called "Abraham Lincoln. Foully Assassinated, April 14, 1865." The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
