ing of the work, Parnell says
"I have pleasure writing a few
lines of preface to Mr. T. P. O'Connor's
volume. It is at moments
of crisis like the present, when other po
litical parties face the expense and dif
ficulties of a political campaign with
hesitation and apprehension, that one
really appreciates the enormous position
of vantage in which American generosity
has placed the Irish party. Then the
unanimity of opinion both among the
statesmen and the journalists of America
has done much to encourage men like
Mr. Gladstone, who are fighting for the
Irish cause, and to fill Ireland's enemies
with the grave misgiving that the policy
condemned by another great and free
nation may not be sound or just. For
these reasons we are all especially de
sirous that American opinion should be
made acquainted with the merits and
facta of this great controvery, and the
following pages are eminently calculated
te perforin that good work."
