of his Administration and Cabinet. On his fingers from left to right are
Secretary of the Navy Richard Thomson (sic), Secretary of
the Treasury John Sherman, Secretary of War George McCrary, Secretary of
State William Evarts. On his thumb is Attorney General Charles Devens and
in his palm is Secretary of the Interior Carl Schurz. His cufflink depicts
Postmaster General David Key.
Hiding under the hat are James Blaine, Simon Cameron and other opponents.
