Gouache on artist’s board is one of the finest Mullin’s known. Full color presentation piece to his funeral director friend, Walter Cooke.

The Bum is exclaiming, “Nothin’ Fancy…Somethin’ in Pine Or Maybe Yez Could Jus’ Leave Me Have a Old Packing Case…Line It Wit Gunny Sack… An’ Th’ Fittin’s Cn’ Be Brass.” “Walter Cooke is the name stenciled on the door with “Leave Us Lay You Out” below.
