Description:

Black and white print of a man (possibly N.Y. Senator Silas Wright) standing in the center of the print holding on the right, the tail of a donkey and on his left, the tail of a horse. Mounted on the donkey is a man in a smock-frock with a broad rimmed hat (probably Churchill C. Cambreleng) heading in the direction of Albany. Seated on the horse, headed in the opposite direction (towards Washington) is William L. Marcy, in a uniform. Additional dialog and phrases appear on the print.
