Credit, don't ask it, it isn't square
Print shows, on the left, an abandoned house falling into ruin and a worn-out, emaciated horse, with four lines of verse printed below: "Credit, dont ask it, it isn't square, / Though hard to keep it I did try. / Why man it would ruin a millioniare [sic], / So I've turned credit out to die." On the right is a heavily attended horse race, with the horse labeled "Cash" in the lead, also with four lines of verse printed below: "Cash, I've adopted in its place, / Its sure and true and no ways slow, / Its bound to win in any race, / So my friends pay as you go." The two scenes are presented in a stereograph format.
