In Collection: Pearse Papers, 1870-1932
Description: She writes: "This country is too big for me, I cannot expand to fit it. I'm better suited to our little island. Very few of the emigrants [on the voyage] were Irish, and looking at some of them one felt sorry for America rather than for their native lands.' Mentions 'that there is a lot of distress in New York. Enquires whether Pearse is going on with his German lessons and if he is leading the "strenous life" as he has resolved to. Signs off "Lebe Wohl. Adieu. Slan leat. Please remember me to your mother".
