"Charity begins at home"

Dalrymple, Louis, 1866-1905
Uncle Sam stands on an island labeled "Philippines" at an open gate labeled "Open to All Nations on Equal Terms." He is welcoming an international crowd to enter through the gate. A female figure labeled "Commerce" is tugging on his coattails; she is standing on a solid, fortress-like structure labeled "U.S." and "Protective Tariff Wall."
