Wood-engraved cartoon from the Victorian-era publication Punch. The cartoon depicts Abraham Lincoln as a lawyer sitting behind a desk with a quill to his lips. A woman, Mrs. North, sits in a chair beside him. The message of the cartoon is pro-Democrat in that it calls for peace, no matter the cost (i.e., the continuation of slavery).
