Description

Ink drawing. Young drew hundreds of gag cartoons during his life and often used racial or ethnic stereotypes in them. Readers of the day would have known that Abe and his well-dressed colleague talking about “Christmas spirit” were Jewish merchants. This is a mild stereotype cartoon compared to others by Young picturing Jewish lawyers, the Irish, and Blacks.
