Too Late!, 1885. Artist: Joseph Swain

Too Late!, 1885. Britannia mourns the loss of General Gordon. When trouble started to loom in Egypt, the British government sent one of the country's finest soldiers to sort the matter out. Upon arrival in Cairo, Gordon had set off without an escort to the troublespot of Khartoum. However, he had then become stranded there without support and the Mahdi, the local government officer from Sudan, leading the revolt against Egyptian mismanagement of the Sudan, had eventually taken Gordon's citadel. Plans to relieve Gordon had been delayed in London by the government's concentration on the 1884 Reform Act. Gordon died at the hands of the Mahdi two days before help arrived on the 28th January 1855. From Punch, or the London Charivari February 14, 1885

Egyptian Bonds, 1882. Artist: Joseph Swain Featured Print

Egyptian Bonds, 1882. Artist: Joseph Swain

Egyptian Bonds, 1882. John Bull represents the British Navy, and is tied to a small French sailor. At the right of the cartoon is Arabi Pasha who was generally viewed as the representative of a national movement in Egypt. Others believed him simply to be a rebel against the Khedive and the Sultan. Lord Granville, the Liberal Foreign Secretary is carrying Turkey on his back. This relates to a conference held at Constantinople to consider the situation in Egypt. Britain and France demanded that Arabi be removed from Egypt but this proved fruitless. A Turkish mission arrived at Alexandria, but on the 11th June there was a riot at Alexandria when Europeans were attacked. Lord Granville had to admit that Arabi was in control. However, after a conference with Dervish Pasha of Turkey, Arabi conceded that he would obey the Khedive in maintaining order. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 8, 1882
