A Little Knowledge, &c,

“A Little Knowledge, &c,”

From the Internet Archive online version of a copy in the University of Iowa Library

Fair Visitor (with a thirst of military knowledge: — “So all the kitchens are behinf these buildings, How very interesting! And how many points of meat do your men eat a day?”

Gallant Major: — “Really — er — I’ve no — er — idea, I’m sure, don’t y’know.”

Fair Visitor: — “But I thought you were in the Provisional Battalion!”

A cartoon that depends upon a play on two meanings of “provision.”
