Russell (George) A.E. A very good ALs to (T.P.) Gill, 3pp from the post Office, Rossmuck, Maam Cross, Co. Galway, probably referring to Gill’s appointment as editor of the Dublin Daily Express. ‘You have my heartiest wishes for your success. I feel everyday that there is the greatest need of a higher popular educational influence than we have had hitherto. The tone of public thought in Ireland I find strangely behind the tone of private life, and the narrowness and bigotry of the one contrasts curiously with the warm hearted generosity of the other….’ Also discusses the suitability of a man named Pryse as a newspaper compositor, and his own problems in varying his local reports on I.A.C.S. affairs.’ I am working on a report on money lending and shopkeeping here for Mr. Plunkett …. Best wishes to you – the Gods – the true gods – never require to be prayed to – They act for the bet without regard to prayer. With a good bold signature. A little foxed, a few marginal tears, no loss. With a full typed transcript. As a m/ss., w.a.f. (1)
