Description:

Color print of a scene depicting a conversation between a man (Daniel O'Connell) standing in Ireland on the left side of the print, and a stereotypical Irish-American family (a man named "Patrick", his wife, three children and dog) located on the right side of the print on farm land labeled "America." O'Connell leans on a stick labeled "Agitation" and speaks into a horn labeled "Abolition." He is being chastised by a gentleman or policeman in blue and a British "Redcoat." The Irish-American farmer expresses his opinion about the benefits of being in America. Additional dialog and phrases appear on the print.
