African-American man with knapsack walking away from a Caucasian man lynched from a tree branch. White envelope with blue ink. Image on left. "Judas vile betrayed his master, I betrayed fair liberty. We meet the same end of high treason and dangle from the same high tree. Massa Davis, what a figure, you will cut upon dat swing. I'd sooner be the poorest nigger, den the whitest 'cotton king.'"
