His foresight

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
Uncle Sam, as a large rooster, stands among several small free-ranging chicks labeled "Argentine Republic, Guatemala, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Salvador, Peru, [and] Hayti [sic]." Confined to a "European Coop" labeled "Monroe Doctrine" are five roosters labeled "Russia, England, France, Germany, [and] Italy." Caption: Europe -- You're not the only rooster in South America! Uncle Sam -- I was aware of that when I cooped you up!
