||Cartoonist Matt Morgan uses white letters on a black background to emphasize in bold relief his message that the voters face a stark choice between Horace Greeley’s honesty and ability (left) and Ulysses Grant’s corruption and malfeasance (right). The Greeley tally sheet promises civil service reform, specie payments, fair elections, a one-term presidency, and an end to corruption. Four lines deal with the situation in the South, of which three essentially call for an end to Reconstruction, while “equal rights to all” is meant to reassure blacks. In conclusion it is predicted that the Greeley presidency will bring peace, security, and prosperity. A hard-working Greeley sits at his desk and confers with his dignified advisors (l-r) (possibly) former Interior Secretary Jacob Cox , Senator Lyman Trumbull (seated), Senator Carl Schurz, [unknown], and Senator Charles Sumner.
