Keys to History

This satire is at the expense of Mr. Benjamin Holmes' infirmity in the matter of strong drink, while it also includes a hit at his Annexation record (Excerpt from: Bengough, John Wilson. A Caricature History of Canadian Politics: Events from the Union of 1841, as Illustrated by Cartoons from "Grip", and Various Other Sources. Toronto: The Grip Printing and Publishing Co, 1886.)

Cartoon originally published in Punch in Canada, November 1849
