Summary
Print shows a head labeled "Cuban Moloch", which is probably meant to suggest a demonic figure, with it's mouth open wide to swallow a flotilla of Spanish ships headed toward Cuba; a frightened young King Alfonso XIII of Spain cowers on a throne in the lower right corner among mounting "Debts", an empty strong box, a broken sword labeled "Spain", orb, scepter, and a tattered Spanish flag. The "Moloch" reaches a hand out, across the ocean, toward the still child-like Alfonso.
