The cover sends to the IW a "...copy of extracts from my remarks before the House which touch upon the development of Ireland. I thought perhaps you might find the same of interest" From the remarks: "…England was sharply criticized in the House of Representatives last week by Representative Arthur D. Healey…who took the British government to task for its refusal to permit the merger of six valuable counties of northern Ireland with the new state of Eire…" and further explains the value of Ireland and of Finland, "…two grand little nations…" who "…demonstrate strikingly the natural tendency of an autonomous people to develop an ideology based upon peace and tolerance and upon economic and social justice…In the short space of some 20 years of independent government, each of these nations has emerged from an undeveloped, backward country to a modern, enterprising and progressive land…Ireland has gone far toward developing a sound national economy based upon development of its own resources and a program of sound economic relationships with other nations…Ireland has been handicapped and embarrassed by the partition under the British Act of 1920, which withheld from the new state six of the more fruitful counties of all Ireland. These counties have a natural affiliation to the Irish nation, and, if left to their own devices without the constant rousing of prejudices, jealousy and other disuniting emotions by external forces, would naturally gravitate to the new state. These counties could play a vital part in the economy of Eire and would contribute substantially to the development of a sound and self-sufficient economy for that nation…" Arthur Daniel Healey (1883 - 1948), was a US Congressman and later, a District Judge for the State of Massachusetts. Approx. 8" x 10 1/2" size; with the mailing envelope, also with his office imprint & free-franked in print by Healey. Envelope soiled & torn; letter & extracts in very good condition.
