O Jeff! You little noisy cur!
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
A general on horseback, most likely representing General Winfield Scott has lassoed a mad dog, most likely representing Jefferson Davis. The general is saying to the dog, O Jeff! You little noisy cur! You've made our patriot blood to stir; no more our ruin you shall plot, For I've my lasso round you got.". The dog is replying "Ki-i! Ki-i! Ki-i! Ki-i! I'm doom'd a traitor's death to die! I've been my country's bitter scorner; And now, alas! I am a gone-er!"."
