Arthur Takes The Oath As President" plus there are various subheads on the ftpg. including: "The President's Last Moments" "All the Doctors Surprised" "The First News Of the Event" "Preparations For the Funeral" "The Nation In Its Brief" "The Official Bulletins" "The Last Day of Life" and a bit more.
