Description

Content/Description:Satire on opponents of 1856 Vigilance Committee illustrates text by Sydney Smith which tells of Mrs. Partington who attempted to turn back the Atlantic Ocean in a terrible storm with a broom. Law and order (David C. Broderick?) seen in housewife's garb sweeps back floodwaters of vigilance and reform with broom of proclamation. Jester on barrel marked "Herald" blows trumpet; sun-faced figure holds bayonet while standing on stool.
