Justice to the Rescue!, 1876. Uncle Sam and John Bull, representing Britain and the United States of America, are tearing up the Extradition Treaty of 1842. The allegorical figure of Justice, identifiable by her sword and scales, intervenes, saying: 'Stop, gentlemen! You've both of you too many rogues loose, to do without that!'. The extradition treaty was a clause dealing with the mutual extradition of criminals and was part of the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, an agreement between the United States and Britain which was one of the many instances in which the two nations settled disputes without going to war. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 1, 1876.
