This composition initially appeared in Westminster Magazine in February 1778, where the symbolism is explained: a host of enemies pillaging a milk cow representing British commerce. An American Indian saws off the cow's horns, with Philadelphia in the background. The cartoon was frequently re-engraved in this period, with the present version issued without a date or credit line (apparently Dutch). See Cresswell 726.
