    "At the Head.
    It is stated in Mr. and Mrs. Ponnella's "Life of James MacNeill Whistler" in that part which relates to his brief West Point career that the great American painter was not "soldierly in appearance, bearing or habit." Whistler's horsemanship is said to have been hardly better than his scholarship. According to General Webb, it was not wholly unusual for him at cavalry drill to go sliding over his horse's head. On such occasions Major Sackett, then in command, would call out: "Mr. Whistler, aren't you a little ahead of the squad?" According to Whistler's version by the Ponnella's, Major Sackett's remark was: "Mr. Whistler, I am pleased to see you for once at the head of your class.""
