A woman sleeps sitting up, sword in right hand, musket under her right arm and pistol on her lap; her shield, marked "Amerique", leans against her. A gnome-like ragged man with long tangled hair is grabbing her plumed hat with his right hand, and her musket with his left hand. Caption refers to him as Walker, a joker, who is disturbing the sleep of his mother-country in order to parody and cheat her. (Virginia K. Anderson 10/01/93)
