Description

Secretary of War William Howard Taft strides with luggage past the “dogs of war.” On his luggage are emblems from around the world. A tag on his arm reads, “The bearer is O. K. Give him a good time—T. R. (Theodore Roosevelt).” Behind him is a black man carrying a chest bearing Taft’s name and status. A group of men greet the secretary with the comments, “Good joke on the railroads. They get only two cents a mile” and “Give my regards to the Mikado.” The caption reads, “Peaceful Bill, the Secretary of War starts on his trip around the world.”
