An 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" medium card stock valentine. To the left depicts young city gentlemen holding a cane. In the right corner is a city clerk leaning over his desk writing with an ink pen. The top of the card has a simple verse, 'To My Valentine.' The center of the valentine has a verse demeaning the clerk for seeming uppity when he has a low paying job. A more sophisticated version of a vinger valentine or penny dreadful.  Lower right is marked Raphael Tuck & Sons Co. The condition is fair. Horizontal center crease
