An important contemporary engraving, apparently unrecorded, with no record of the engraver S. Pearse, or of the Comus Press (probably connected with 'The Comus', a periodical launched in Bengal in 1857). On one side of a piece of wove paper, roughly 22.5 x 28 cm. On lightly-spotted and aged paper. Discreet repair to tear which had split the item in two. A crude but accurate representation of the well and environs, with the following text beneath: 'THE WELL AT CAWNPORE. S. Pearse.| Into which the bodies of the Women and Children were thrown after the Massacre. "The house in the background is that in which the butchery was committed and the bodies were dragged through the doorway over between the trees, through the gap in the wall and along the path to the right of the well into which they were thrown. Blood and hair was visible all along the path. The gallows is seen on the right and scores of murderers have already expiated their crimes upon it." | Lithd. at the "Comus" Press.'.
