Description: Refuses to be part of "a shameful and cowardly surrender of the Republic, whose ultimate victory is assured ... Too many of our dear comrades have been murdered behind prison bars by the Imperial Free State Government to surrender now the ideals for which they died. We did not surrender to the might of England, we will not surrender to one of her whelps". He goes on to say that "the murder of Republican prisoners only tends to make our cause more sacred and to harden the determination of our men to carry on the fight".
