Title

Will this letter be answered [mailing a letter]

Description

Editorial cartoon by Walker O'Loughlin originally published in the Portland Telegram. Republished here in Cartoons Magazine, vol. 2, no. 6 (December 1912), p. 9.

A girl in ragged clothing holds up a small boy so he can drop a letter into a U.S. Mail box. The letter appears to be addressed to "A Good Fellow c/o Telegram City." Cartoons Magazine caption at top of page: "Will this letter be answered."

A separate illlustration at bottom right shows a child, in patched clothing with bare feet, asleep at a table. The child sits on a broken chair, clutching an empty stocking.
