Description

"Declined With Thanks". Editorial cartoon showing Uncle Sam as a large, fat man. President William McKinley, as a tailor, is measuring Uncle Sam for larger clothing. Anti-expansionists, led by Joseph Pulitzer, are holding bottles of medicine labeled "Anti-Expansion Policy" and spoons; they say, "Here, take a dose of this anti-fat and get thin again!" Uncle Sam replies, "No, Sonny! I never did take any of that stuff, and I'm too old to begin!"
