Description: An Irish American delegation visited Ireland in 1919 on its way to the post-war Paris Peace Conference, where it sought to promote Ireland's case for independence. Part of the copy to the delegation reads: "We appreciate your efforts on behalf of our country's Independence. We welcome you as the representatives of our exciled countrymen in America, whose great work for their old homeland is appreciated by all Irish-men at home. We welcome you as distinguished members of our exiled people. We admire your outspoken, uncompromising expression of opinions regarding the right of the Irish people to set up that republican form of government to which at the last general election they have expressed their allegiance. We are at one with you in those expressions. We wish you God speed in your work, praying that he may bless your efforts at the Peace Congerence and that our country'[s] independence may soon be recognised by all nations and the long night of our thraldom and slavery ended. Beanacht [Beannacht] De oraibh [God's blessing on you] On behalf of Cork Poor Law Board ".
