This cartoon calls for the U.S. to counter Mexican anti-American propaganda that is being spread in Central and South America. A peasant wearing traditional clothes and a sombrero labeled "Mexcio" tosses seeds from a sack marked "Distrust of U.S." onto Central America while he walks towards South America. In the background Uncle Sam leans over a fence while holding a bag labeled "Diplomacy," a rake, and a hoe. He declares "Guess I better do some sowing in that field myself!"
