Another "At war..." cartoon, with an officer speaking to another officer who has removed his cap and stands with other soldiers behind him. A saddled horse waits at the left for the head officer to remount. This officer explains to his inferior "All right, my friends, just a little more patience; we've not been able to supply the camp with provisions, but I think that before 3 or 4 days there'll be enough to give you something to eat." The caption under the cartoon reads "Above all, one must not consider hunger." (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
