From the Tales of the American Burden, Y-14 Post Burden (P.B.)/ Y-40 Post Burden.

Number 21 in C.W. Boyle's Burden chronology guide: "Little is known of the conception of the painting named The Lamentation of James Edgar Kurtz, other than that P.J. Endres Jr. painted it promptly after the end of the Cephalophoric War. The scene prophetically, or perhaps threateningly, imagines an older version of James Edgar Kurtz (center) some forty years after The Copley Endgame battle, awaiting the fatal arrival of The Sons of Ocampo. Endres Jr. who was at one time the First Royal Painter of the Ocampo Sovereign, makes some hefty claims against Kurtz, who famously betrayed Ocampo in battle. The artist has given him a relic in his left hand, identifying him as a member of the secret organization known as the Ishmaelian Society. Despite such an open accusation, Kurtz has never publicly responded to the painting, and no connection has been found."
