Abstract:

Subject: Image of Benjamin Franklin Butler wearing a dress, sitting on a rock labeled "7th District." On his lap is Ebenezer Hoar, with an infant's body. Butler uses a "Boston Herald" newspaper as a diaper for Hoar, who is trying to slap another man with an infant's body, wearing a diaper from "N.Y. World." Three other men are seen walking away from Butler, all with newspaper diapers. An allegorical figure of Massachusetts stands behind Butler and says: Mass.--"Don't spank him." Butler replies "Ebenezer, don't make a fuss. This one is not very clean, but it will do for you. Don't get yourself into another muss; that's a darling."
