Inauguration day, 1897 - a good beginning
President William McKinley sits at his desk, as former president Grover Cleveland departs with Uncle Sam. Puck is standing on a step-ladder, carving "McKinley's Good Record" and "Appointment of Gage, Sec. of Treasury" into stone next to "Cleveland's Good Record" which includes "Extension of Civil Service Reform," "Repeal of Silver Purchase Bill," "Suppression of Chicago Riots," "Settlement of Venezuelan Controversy," and "Arbitration Agreement with England." Caption: Puck--Keep on this way, Mr. President, and you may leave as good a record as your predecessor!
