COL. RICHARD M. JOHNSON, OF KENTUCKY. Born 1781.
   
Complete Explanation:
Portrait of Kentucky Representative Richard M. Johnson, standing in a rhetorical pose and holding documents inscribed "Sunday Mail Reports" in his right hand. He points with his left hand to other documents on a table which read, "Report in Defence of Andrew Jackson on the Seminole War", "Abolishing Imprisonment for Debt" and "Rights of Conscience, Liberty of Speech and Freedom of the Press".
