Brody also writes of the Easter Rising and Civil War "Well Easter week near broke my heart.......I believe one hundred thousand was all that was sent from this side a small sum to start a revolution against one of the greatest nations at that time in [the] world, but although the result was fatal to so many noble souls their death and the awakening of the people was glorius, extremely so. But the last year was very inglorious, nothing in Irish history so inglorious. For the life of me I cannot make out what they fought for....".
