Who Shall Educate? or, Our Babes in the Wood.

Who Shall Educate? or, Our Babes in the Wood. Punch (23 April 1853). The sword of the figure in the Puritan hat on the left bears the label “Dissent” while that of the one on the right, who is dressed like an eighteenth-century squire, has “High Church,” which suggests he represents the pre-Oxford Movement High-And-Dry Anglicans, who probably would have been caricatured as Romanist priests.
