Bullock and his wife and extended family, almost all identified, including one of a young son or nephew dressed in a military uniform; cartes of many prominent Cincinnatians; a fine carte of abolitionist Lucretia Mott; a carte of Samuel Francis Smith, writer of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee"; and a carte labeled "The Author of Dixie," though it does not appear to be Dan Emmett.

James, 4th Ohio Cavalry; carte of an officer identified as Col. Littler, USA; carte of an officer identified as Dr. McMullen(?); carte of Col. George H.
