Keys to History

This was a satirical allusion to the "tall talk" indulged in by a coterie of French followers of Papineau, who favoured a democratic form of Government for Canada as a cure for the prevailing discontent. (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, July 7th, 1849
