The print is a reproduction of a two-panel cartoon that originally was published in 30 May 1868 edition of Harper's Weekly. The cartoon is commentary on the failure of the Senate to remove President Andrew Johnson from office and shows the differing reactions in the White House and the New York Tribune. In the first panel, Johnson is shown dressed as a king, while the second panel shows a fainting Horace Greeley. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
