Description
 
Single-fold 7" x 4 3/4" with lace paper cover and solid cartouche.   At first view one sees a lithograph of a rifleman with a verse titled "The Rifelmans Call".  It reads Roused by the bugles pealing call Into the warlike ranks you fall, But when your sailor calls, I hear, Bys some back door you disappear." The bottom half of the rifleman flips up a gent with a tipped hat and a list of "Town Traitors" appears.  Marked Mansell. Back page embossed "Collection of Helen Benson Matthews"..
