as the Irish have been in the forefront of every battle for freedom
fought on every soil of the world's broad lands, ever hearing the
cry of "Faughabala" voiced by justice, even though it be in the
strangest of tongues, borne upon the gentlest of winds,
so has the Red Gross heard and answered the cry of
we Irish are today asking the government of the United States to point out
to His Majesty's councils the resultant good and equity in giving Ireland her freedom.
and as the broad road to the ultimate liberty and freedom of Ireland winds

and marked by Red Cross help. )
Being an Irishman, I believe from the bottom of my heart in the traditions of
Ireland, with her fairies, her fabled kings, stout-hearts and beautiful women.
being an Irishman who is proud of the quick and generous answer of the
Irish to every just appeal,
I ask you to support this worthy cause in just the amount you can afford,
whether it be a penny, a dollar, a shilling, a pound or ten,
and as you tear out and mail this coupon to the Red Cross fund, you will see
that it is keyed with the shamrock, so that those who classify these contribu
tions will know
j that this is just one more strong, smiling Irish help to mankind's comfort.
