Grover Cleveland and the Tammany Tiger

In this political cartoon, President Grover Cleveland leans over the walls of the White House, holding a gun. A representative from Tammany Hall, whose forlorn tiger is injured, stands expectantly on the other side of the wall. The poster states, "Resolved that Tammany Hall recommends to the attention of the president the prominent members of this organization as worthy of recognition in selection for public service." This cartoon was probably published around March, 1893, when Cleveland officially announced that he would not take group requests for patronage.
