Several sickly-looking French soldiers sit or stand in a barracks. One is saying: "About Algiers there is nothing to tell...fevers so malignant that they infect everyone, even the wicked...and the colic, well!...that's a curiosity that spreads joy!" The caption under the cartoon reads "What a beautiful country!" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
