    Description

    Jacksonian Era Cartoon. H. R. Robinson of New York published this 19.5" x 14" cartoon in the 1830's. Titled "A Globe To Live On!", it depicts Francis Preston Blair and Amos Kendall. Kendall was Postmaster General in Jackson's Cabinet and former editor of the "Argus of Western America" and the "Washington Globe". Blair was a member of Jackson's "Kitchen Cabinet" and succeeded Kendall as editor of the Globe. This cartoon shows them connected like Siamese twins and suggests that Kendall could steer subscribers to the newspaper through his Cabinet position. It is signed "N.S." and is in excellent condition.
