All four pages has wide, black "mourning" rules around the perimeter for the death of President William Henry Harrison.
Page 3 has: "Arrangements For the Interment of the Late President" which includes a diagram showing the funeral procession and the position of "the corpse" with pall bearers, etc.

Great to have this report from the city where he died. Four pages, great condition.
