The Health of Ireland

    Urges that those 'medical men' caring for the 'body politic' attend to Ireland, whose condition has been worsened by the cessation of Irish emigration to America (owing to the Civil War). Describes some of the symptoms likely to be observed, including 'all manner of inflammations and irruptions', but is more hopeful that 'agitations' will not ensue.
