    U.S. Notes Cartoon Contest July 22, 2011

    The most-used theme for the July cartoon caption contest, in which readers were asked to be King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella on the stamp in Figure 2, was the "don't forget" theme. The illustration on the 5ยข Columbian stamp from 1893 is Columbus entreating the Spanish royals for financial support to fund his travels to India.
