This set of Valentine's Day cartoons share politics as a common theme (counter-clockwise from upper-left): international recognition of the United States centennial; anti-Reconstruction violence; Catholicism and public schools; and the presidential campaign. In the latter (upper-right), Brother Jonathan (a precursor to Uncle Sam) hunts for an acceptable Republican nominee now that President Grant's third-term duck is dead. He finds four good candidates (l-r): Senator Roscoe Conkling of New York; Senator John Sherman of Ohio (or his brother General William Sherman); former Speaker of the House James Blaine of Maine; and Governor Rutherford Hayes of Ohio.
