'Tear'em At The Tuileries', 1863. Artist: John Tenniel
'Tear'em At The Tuileries', 1863. Eugenie says: Ah, Mon Cher Louis! Pray Don't Cram The Poor Little Fellow Any More; It is Positively Cruel. This shows Mr John Arthur Roebuck, the MP for Sheffield, wearing a labelled collar. He is sitting up and begging for humbugs from Napoleon, whose wife, Eugenie, is attempting to restrain him from cruelly overfeeding the dog, John Arthur Roebuck. This relates to a speech given by John Arthur Roebuck in the House of his recent interview with Napoleon during which the Emperor had given permission for his views to be made known to the Commons. The most important part of this was that Napoleon continued to hold the view that the Southern States of America should be recognised. John Arthur Roebuck had previously been a fierce opponent of Napoleon and was now much jeered for what was considered his display of gullibility and subservience to Napoleon. The 'Tear'em' in the title comes from John Arthur Roebuck's previously widely known pugnacious attitude to perceived wrongs or criminal behaviour. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 11, 1863.
