The ever faithful Engels has sent you a number of the Irish World at my request, containing a declaration against landownership (private) by an Irish bishop. This was the latest news that I passed on to your mamma and she thought you could perhaps insert it in a French paper to frighten the French clericals. In any case, it shows that these gentlemen can pipe any tune.
