Sts,—While I admire your readiness to print all views, I must confess that I am surprised at the fact that " Hibernicus " is not more vigorously answered by your British readers.
To me it is astounding to think that we should submit to being dictated to on the subject of excessive nationalism by an Irishman of all people.
Perhaps Hibernicus " is an exceptional Irishman, and perhaps he strongly opposed the behaviour of his countrymen when they broke their solemn pledge with Britain, but I am prepared to bet that he is not and did not.
When in Ireland I have heard people describing your paper as not really Catholic, and on asking the reason was told that it was highly nationalistic (i.e., pro-British). That is the nice Christian atmosphere which " Hibernicus " breathes and from which he has the cheek to preach to us.
