This black and white illustration is of Thomas H. Benton, nicknamed "Old Bullion", was a United States Senator from Missouri who came to oppose the institution of slavery after the Mexican–American War, and he opposed the Compromise of 1850 as too favorable to pro-slavery interests. Benton is depicted as wearing a light colored coat and dark tie with a white shirt. The artist's name is directly beneath the right corner of the illustration and Benton's signature is depicted in the lower portion of the page beneath the illustration. The illustration is within volume two of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
