Atlantic Telegraph Company

    Shows Neptune wrapped in lengths of the recently laid Atlantic telegraph cable, rising out of the Atlantic. On the right, Britannia stands with her shield and bow lowered in an apparent gesture of peace. On the left, Brother Jonathan (the personification of the United States of America) kneels in respect on the distant shores of the United States. Britannia and Jonathan receive the blessing of the 'Heavy Father' [because laden in iron cable] of the sea for reconciling each other with the telegraph.
