Caption: Drowning in his Own Pool

Source/Date: Puck, June 4, 1884

Creator: Friedrich Graetz

Remarks: Gould drowns as William Vanderbilt looks on. This may be wishful thinking. Gould was caught short in a Lackawanna pool and lost a small amount of money, but when this cartoon was drawn he was by no means drowning.
