HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, March 23, 1912
The front page of this issue is a photo of "A New Masterpiece For America."
This issue has an illustration of "The Issue" by Kemble and photos of "One Kind of Recall" which says that "Judge Thornton Massie, Attorney William Foster and Sheriff Lew Webb were shot down and killed in the county court-house at Hillsville, Virginia..." There is a double page illustration in tribute to the "Maine" which sunk on March 16, 1912. There is also a very small photo of a ship which says underneath "The largest liner - the White Star steamship "Titanic," soon to be completed at Belfast" and much more.
Other advertisements of the day are included as well, helping to portray life at the turn of the century.
