The duty of great nations
Print shows John Bull attempting to reassure Uncle Sam that the storm clouds labeled "Philippine Complications" blowing in from the right will soon pass; he gestures toward a monument labeled "Civilization" carved with figures labeled "Guiana, Australia, Ireland, Scotland, India, Canada, Egypt, S. Africa, [and] W. Indies," topped with "Britannia" seated with the British Lion.
Caption: John Bull--Don't get discouraged, Sam! I've had just that sort of trouble for three hundred years, while I've been building this monument. It has cost many human lives and much money, but the whole world, as well as England, has benefited by it.
