They would still be Independent Nationalists; they would still believe in the future of IRELAND AS A NATION and they would still protest that it was NOT BY TAKING ORDERS FROM AN ENGLISH MINISTER that Ireland's future could be saved, protected or secured'. Fellow-countrymen, let it be the glory of our race at home and abroad to act up the spirit of this message. God Save Ireland!' Extract from a Manifesto issued by the late John Redmond, M.
