'Drawing The Stumps', 1862. Cobden to Dizzy. Carries Out His Bat? Of Course He Does! Your Underhand Bowling 'll Never Get Him Out! I'll Show You How to Do It Next Innings. Mr Speaker draws the stumps after another Session of Parliament and Palmerston is 'not out' yet again. Richard Cobden was a passionate supporter of the concept of free trade and disarmament. Although he was instrumental in preserving some sort of relationship between the administrations of Lincoln and Palmerston during the Civil War, here he is shown telling Disraeli, the unsuccessful bowler, that underarm - or underhand - bowling would not get Palmerston out. From Punch, or the London Charivari, August 16, 1862.
