Summary

The cartoon illustrating U.S. mistrust, shows Carranza, seated at a table with Uncle Sam dressed in American military uniform. Carranza, reading him the "Last Will and Testament of Pancho Villa" says, "And to you he leaves the--what-you-call-it?--the 'Merry Ha-Ha'!" implying that the joke is on him. Uncle Sam meanwhile, looks out of the window behind Carranza at a tombstone labeled, "Here Lies Villa." The first and the last words are lightly blocked out and a dotted line indicates that Uncle Sam's gaze is fixed only on the word "Lies."
