BLAKE'S PATRIOTIC LOG CABIN MUSIC.
   
Complete Explanation:
A Whig campaign song in praise of William Henry Harrison, illustrated with a rural tableau of the candidate's fabled log cabin on the Ohio River. The cabin stands in a clearing, and flies an American flag. A cider barrel is beside its open door, around which grows a vine. Outside, Harrison, in shirtsleeves and with his hand resting on a shovel, speaks with a drover or farmer whose ox wagon waits nearby. The drover raises a glass of cider. In the foreground is a plough, and in the background a man works on a rail fence.

The song is "Respectfully Inscribed to all true Republicans in the United States."
