One side of the card shows a black and white caricature of a crying baby holding a cat by its tail. The baby is sitting up, its eyes closed tightly in pain, dripping large tears, with its mouth wide open, bawling. The baby's left hand holds tha cat's tail, but we see only its tail and hind legs. Above the baby is printed, "The Prince of Wails," and underneath is, "Minard's Liniment, King of Pain." The other side of the card bears the text.
Front of card depicts a girl embracing a cat and reading a piece of paper. The back of the card lists the logistics and legalities of the product as well as all pertinent data for those who would like to be a sales agent for the remedy.
