      Jefferson Davis is depicted as an obsequious waiter offering bonds, cotton, and letters of marque to Emperor Napoleon III of France, seeking an alliance. Napoleon dismisses him with a wave of the hand. Queen Victoria of England watches disinterestedly as she holds a small pile of Mississippi bonds. 5 examples in OCLC, and none traced at auction since 1992.
