O’Connor Power goes to Washington

Ireland’s Congratulations

John O’Connor Power, a member of the British Parliament for Mayo, arrived in New York on Saturday with the Irish congratulatory address on the Centennial.  It is in a handsome frame, the penmanship finely executed, and surrounded by a gold band entwined with shamrocks;  the corners are shields bearing the arms of the four Irish provinces, Leinster, Ulster,  Munster and Connaught.
