Robert E. Lee Portrait
SOUTHERN COTTON PLANTER.
"Look hyar, Mr. MEMMINGER, how're we going to Feed our niXXers if the Darned
Government won't Buy our Cotton or let us Sell it to some one else?"
"That, Gentlemen, is a very interesting question of Economical Science, and I
recommend you to study it closely. As for the Government we have established, so
far from being able to Help you, it needs all your Money and Portable Property,
and I rather reckon it will take 'em by and by."
COLUMBIA. "Now, it's
no use you're coming round here, JOHN, I haven't any Cotton for you."
JOHN BULL (an
English Peddler). "Well, Mum, it ain't the COTTON I care so much about just now,
but if you would only Purchase a few small Articles to help me to Buy BREAD for
my Starving Children."
