Description: Newspaper clipping giving a brief biographical sketch of George Sanders.

Transcription:

GEORGE SAUNDERS. [strikethrough by Gunn]

George Saunders is a politician by trade, and a Red Republican by religion. He once owned the “Democratic Review,” which was a highly amusing journal, edited by wild Irishmen. This magazine was of the hibernating order, disappearing for long periods, but coming out again at times of political excitement. By the aid of this journal, George succeed in getting the Consulship to London from Pierce, when he immediately put up the shutters, and allowed the Democratic Review to die right out. George is now engaged in feeding and fattening some influential politicians, so as to have them ready for market at the next Presidential election, when he expects to be sent Minister to Paris. George is Red Republican, and goes in for blood and massacre generally, and the axe and the block particularly.
