English: Published in July 1870, when Canada took possession of Rupert's Land following the Red River Rebellion, this cartoon appeared just three years after the birth of Canada in 1867. Canada is depicted as a child, with Great Britain, represented as Mother Britannia, holding out her protective arms. Uncle Sam, representing the United States, stands on the other side, ready to "grab" the child if it falls.
Français : La caricature est publiée en juillet 1870, au moment où le Canada acquiert la Terre de Rupert, après la rébellion de la rivière Rouge. La Confédération canadienne était née trois ans plus tôt, en 1867. Dans cette caricature, la jeune fédération canadienne, qui n'a que trois ans, prend les traits d'un enfant. La Grande-Bretagne, son ancienne métropole, est représentée par Mère Britannia, lui tendant des bras protecteurs. Oncle Sam, qui personnifie les États-Unis, se tient de l'autre côté, prêt à « attraper » l'enfant s'il devait tomber.
?Norsk (nynorsk)?: Bestemor Britannia med amerikanske Uncle Sam og småbarnet Canada frå 1870, tre år etter at landet var blitt til.
