Connolly discusses Barnes's response to a statement made by Connolly about his union. However, Connolly is not fully convinced of his response as he is "a comparative newcomer in Ireland". He emphasises his point by saying that Barnes "gladly recognises that the magnificent loyalty of the Dublin men is rendered fruitless by the fact that trade unionists in the Bristol Channel and other coaling ports are not living up to their trade unionist obligations".
