'The Threatening Note', 1865. Artist: John Tenniel

'The Threatening Note', 1865. 'Attorney Lincoln. Now, Uncle Sam, You're in A Darned Hurry to Serve this Here Notice on John Bull. Now, It's My Duty, as Your Attorney, to tell You that You May Drive Him to Go Over to that Cuss, Davis- (Uncle Sam Considers)'. During previous decades, a number of Treaties had been made between Britain and the United States that involved US borders with Canada. However, the US had long felt that the terms of such treaties had been forced upon them and now that Lincoln had been re-elected, the Senate proposed to repeal their terms and conditions. However, President Lincoln, speaking to the eagle, Uncle Sam, recommends caution as the northern states do not want to drive Britain into declaring support for their opponents.
