    Andrew Jackson: 1836 Cartoon. In 1836, the U. S. and France almost went to war over the payment by France of reparations agreed to in the Treaty of 1831. Cooler heads prevailed and the crisis was resolved. Van Buren, Jackson, King William IV and King Louis Philippe are pictured as the key players in this 14" x 20.5" lithographed cartoon titled: "The Apology. Mediation. Satisfaction." The French monarch asks for 7% discount for cash payment. Jackson reluctantly agrees to take the money, despite the "foreign intervention" of England, but declares: "... if he wants to fight by the Eternal I'll meet him with pistol rifle or broadsword and ask no favor!" It has been professionally backed with rice paper. There is a 6" border tear, an 1.5" border tear and a 4" V-shaped internal tear, along with scattered, light foxing.
