Robert E. Lee Portrait
"INVASION" OF THE NORTH.
(Old Quaker Lady of Maryland,
anticipating the seizure of her House by Lee's Troops, puts out a Washing Stand
as a desirable preliminary step thereto. The Rebel Scouts mistake the—to
them—Strange Apparatus for an Infernal Machine, and Skedaddle.)
OLD LADY (to retreating Rebel).
"If thou wants my House, Friend, thou may'st have it;
but, oh! do wash thyself before entering in."
