Bellew, Frank [pages:513]

O'Brien states that Bellew's "imaginative power and sense of humor are not surpassed, perhaps, by any living caricaturist."

Leland, Charles [pages:514]

O'Brien describes Leland as "fantastic, and frequently inimitable."

North, William [pages:513]

O'Brien reminisces about "[p]oor North, the Republican philosopher, who hoped so much when he sought this country, and who came to so melancholy an end after he had tried it."

Thomson, Mortimer [pages:514]

O'Brien mentions Doesticks, "whose humor is entirely original, and whose only fault is that he has given us too much of a good thing."
