Intercourse of Impartial Dealings is a political cartoon created by "Peter Pencil" in 1809. It should be noted that Peter Pencil was a pseudonym. The cartoon serves as a criticism of Thomas Jefferson, who, as president, had reduced military spending to the point where the United States was unable to defend itself against the powers of Europe.
