If I required an excuse for my paper, I would
quote the words of the Chief Secretary Right Hon. A.
Birrell, M.P., in reply to a deputation which recently
waited on him in reference to the Dublin Housing
Problem:—"As long as people rested content to live
surrounded by such things as had been described, they
were in a bad way themselves, perhaps even in a worse way
than their poorer neighbours, who endured these terrible
conditions. The more that was said, and thought, and
written on the subject, particularly when there seemed to
be a little light lifting over that black veil, the better it
would be for all. It was the awakening of public
opinion that was, after all, the only security for the
remedy of the terrible evils which existed in Dublin."
