The two politicians are depicted wearing academic regalia. The question "Always Fair Weather When Democrats Get Together?" is written at the top. Seibel signed and inscribed the cartoon "To The Students of William and Mary with my best wishes."
A typed, single sheet, signed letter dated 14 February 1921, from Warren G. Harding to John W.H. Crim about the possibility of Harding receiving an honorary degree from William and Mary.
