is now onl exhibition in the Clements1
libr ary. This valuable picture was1
purc hased for the library by Regent
William L. Clements a mi"nth ago.

eral at the battle on the Plains of
Abi aham, shows General Wolfe pros-
trate, surrounded. by his subordi-
nate officers and a group of allied In-
diani soldiers., as he (lied in the,
midst of his famous victory.
This1 painting, known as the Wal-
dek copy, is larger than the other

tared in their regular uniforms in--

classical period. The Waldeck copy,
now hanging in the Clements library
was originlally from. Germany. The
other two are in Ottawa, Canada and
