Dated September 1939 on plain blue-lined linen-finish paper; 2 pages. "...Salute this heaven-sent super-man/Unite and lead in Eire's van/ And help him with his God-like plan/To remove the man-made border/Come, fling the old flag on the wind/Leave petty spleen and masks behind/For never again the like you'll find/of matchless De Valera." Signed by Walsh. Writing from the fictional 'Knocknagow' of Charles Kickham, the author of that novel; as indicated on the reverse of the second page of the poem:"Two wee butterflys from Knocknagows grave. Open carefully. T.F.W." Which explains the dark stains on the poem's paper. Charles Kickham was buried in Mullinahone, Co. Tipperary. Butterflies not present.
