Description: Print illustrating William Henry Harrison on his death bed, April 4, 1841. He is pictured with his niece, nephew, physician and members of his cabinet. Harrison was elected President of the United States in 1840 and became the first president to die in office when he succumbed to pneumonia in April 1841, just a few weeks after his inauguration. Beneath the print's title are Harrison's last words: "I wish you to understand the true principles of the Government. I wish them carried out. I ask nothing more." These were spoken to his doctor, but were more likely directed at John Tyler, his vice president and next in succession. View on Ohio Memory.
