Summary: A Whig cartoon spoofing Democratic claims of Western support for Van Buren during the election of 1840. Pursued by animals from the 'Alleghany Mountains' and the Mississippi River, including among others a buffalo, alligator, beaver, turtle, and fox, Van Buren flees to the right saying, 'This is going for me with a vengeance! I wish I was safe at Kinderhook! his birthplace and family home was Kinderhook, New York for I am a used up man!' A parchment 'Sub-Treasury Bill' has fallen at his feet, referring to the independent treasury plan, the centerpiece of Van Buren's fiscal program. Notes: Entered.. 1840 by J. Childs.
