Cartoon published in Harper’s Weekly on September 21, 1861 and captioned “KING COTTON. Oh! Isn’t that a Dainty Dish to set before the King?"

From this drawing, it would seem the North still harbored ill feelings toward England and cared little if the blockade of Southern ports prevented the English from obtaining cotton.
