  "THE PRESIDENTIAL POT-PIE."  
 
 
Frank Leslie's Budget of Fun
 
October 15, 1860
   
 
 
AN ILLUSTRIOUS COOK INSTRUCTING SOME OF HIS MOST INTERESTING PUPILS, MISSES LINCOLN, DOUGLAS AND BRECKINRIDGE.

Illustrious Cook (loq.)
“Now, then, my lasses, in order to make this pot-pie palatable, we must have the right sort of ingredients—so let's see what you have to offer?” Miss Douglas (who was originally a cabinet-maker) offers a first-class Cabinet Ministership and sundry other promises of places, which promises she will keep—politically speaking. Miss Breckinridge proposes to flavor the pie by a fine Savoying Foreign Mission, and will protect the Church's interest, and promises to carry out the Bulls emanating from the Church—which doubtles she will do. Miss Lincoln, a strappin' gal from out West, offers free farms for all, fat offices at home and abroad for the Church people—and some think she'll be likely to keep her promises.
