In Washington DC, President and Mrs. Lincoln attend an evening of Verdi and Bellini opera

President Lincoln and the First Lady heard selections from Guiseppe Verdi's Il Trovatore and Vicenzo Bellini's Il Puritani at the Washington Theater (also called Carusi's Hall) on the north-east corner of C and Eleventh Street in the capital.  The Internal Revenue Service building now occupies that site.  (By John Osborne)
