Practical amalgamation (the dinner party) / EWC [signed on stone].
Cartoon satirizing the effects of interracial mixing. Image of a banquet scene where fashionably dressed people are paired off interracially as couples. All the servants are white, and the interior is lavishly decorated with a fireplace and portraits of an African American man, a white woman, and two bi-racial children. The African American man at the head of the table is standing and saying, "Ladies and gentlemen ob bofe colours, I expose dis sentiment to be drunk standing. De union ob colors! It tends to de prolification ob de human gender, and gibs a wholesome odour to fashionable siety!"
"Entered according to Act of Congress in 1839 by John Childs in the Clerk's Office in the District Court for the southn. Distt. of N.Y."
