Illustration by Thomas Nast, Harper's Weekly, November 11, 1871
I should think that any humane and honest person would rather
be convicted of one robbery and one murder than become a cold and deliberate
confederate in wholesale robbery and wholesale murder by voting a Tammany ticket.
Certainly, if anything is proven up to the hilt, Tammany's financial history
and health statistics of 1901 prove that Tammany's especial and remorseless
trade is wholesale pillage and wholesale destruction of health and life.
