Title: The Senatorial
Creator: Henry Louis Stephens, Vanity Fair
Description: Customer –I notice you draw your ale very mild now, William.
Landlord Seward — Yes, this is a new tap, some I brewed myself last Wednesday; my customers thought the Rochester ale was rather too strong.
Two men draw beer from tapped kegs; the keg on the far right says, “1860 Senate.” After Seward lost the presidential nomination, he dropped his stronger antislavery views in favor of the more moderate Republican platform.
