Nast’s second caricature of Horace Greeley appeared on the cover of the
November 1859 issue of Phunny Phellow. Like “Rival Jockeys,” it focuses
on journalistic competition and features James Gordon Bennett. The New York
Herald editor and his oversized “prize poompkin” [pumpkin] are about to
collide with New York Tribune editor Greeley and his huge squash.
Standing empty-handed between them is New York Times editor Henry
Raymond, who complains that he can display no farm produce except for “a couple
of small potatoes.”
