Scope and Contents

Resolution in the 'Freeman' is a feeble indication of feeling about 'the misleading and offensive conduct of the Government'; they would accept Granard's proposals; Government proposals will increase anti-English feeling; by withholding promised University law, 'they create a new danger to our faith, which must be checker and removed at any cost.'
