An oasis! ...
support the Treaty.
Pro-Treaty handbill [Leaflet no. 7] in black ink on a white background with some text in red. Notice reads: "Mr. de Valera compares Ireland to a party that had set out to cross a desert. " We have come to a green spot, he says, "and there are some who say lie down and stay there". / Yes we have come by means of the Treaty to a green oasis, the last in the long weary desert over which the Irish Nation has been travelling. Oases are the resting places of the desert, and unless the traveller finds them and refeshes himself he never reaches his destination"./ "Ireland has been brought to the last one, beyond which there is but an easy stretch to go. The Nation has earned the right to rest while it renews its strength and resores its vigour." - Michael Collins, 5/3/22."
