* Abraham Lincoln's trip to Washington D.C.
Page 5 has: "The Lincoln Regime", "The New Administration Still in Favor of Coercion" and "The Day Fixed for the Departure of the President Elect for Washington" which also has a subhead: "Mr. Lincoln's Departure For Washington" which begins: "It is now positively settled that Mr. Lincoln will depart for Washington on the 11th of February..."
