Punch, (2 January 1858): 5..
Pam (To Sir Colin.). "Well — Upon my word — Eh! — I'm really extremely obliged to you — But — Eh! — How about keeping the brute?"
The unruly tiger represents India (a map of which appears on the hall) only recently pacified after the Sepoy Muntiny of 1857; Pam is the Prime Minister, Lord Palmerston; and Sir Colin is Sir Colin Campbell, the British general appointed to quell the Indian uprising. For another Punch cartoon featuring these two, see Every Inch A Soldier.
