Harper's Weekly cover of Grant, depicted as a Bulldog, is chained to the steps of the Treasury building by the law, a sign above his head reads 'Notice: You can violate the law, the banks may violate the law and will be sustained in doing so, but the President of the United States cannot violate the law-U. S. Grant.' Uncle Sam lounges near the columns as Wall Street Men beg for money holding a sign that reads 'We want to Borrow the U.S. Treasury Reserve ($44,000,000) for the relief of the sufferers of the 'Street.'
