Editorial cartoon reflects on the friction between the U.S. and Great Britain over unpaid World War One debt. Uncle Sam looks over a fence; the seat of his pants has been ripped out. On the other side of the fence Britannia looks out of a window. Between them is a bulldog labeled "That Debt"; the torn part of Uncle Sam’s pants is in his mouth. At the dog’s feet is a newspaper with the headline, "Anglo-American Friendship." The captions are: “Won’t you come in dear Mr. Jonathan [British nickname for Uncle Sam]?” “I’ve been inside, mam!”
