Description Item reporting on the negative impact of Irish emigration to America. The item reads: "Emigration on a large scale is a slow bleeding to death of our Nation and yet we seem resigned to it and as fatalists, await our doom. For God and country our young people must be kept at home. They must have such a livelihood that thye will be enabled to marry early and bring up in their Catholic home children in conditions that will meet the high standard in this, the twentieth century of civilisation ... Our country is largely undeveloped and consequently there can be work for all".
