Title For Auld Lang Syne
Date May 1912

Carton published in Punch (May 1912) on the Taft-Roosevelt quarrel.

“The President and the ex-President, the latter dressed as a cowboy, are having a fierce mix-up in a saloon. Both are at close grips. Mr. Taft is trying to stick his former friend with a bowie knife, and Mr. Roosevelt is letting fly with a six-shooter.

Uncle Sam, philosophically watching the scrap, says ‘Well, I guess old friends are best.’” — Description in New York Times May 8, 1912. p. 3
