Surely the fellow knows that all the gunmen were on the other side" [Note: "I have in my bible class a number of men who acted as gunmen," said the Rev. James Redmond, Rector of Ballymacarrett. "They are going to be Sunday School teachers"]. Illustration depicts James Craig and a tall man, standing outside of a church building, observing what is taking place therein - visible through the window are men seated in pews, singing, while another man stands in the aisle holding a rifle.
