Written as a series of letters for the Daily News in the autumn of 1852, Letters from Ireland is a graphic snapshot of the aftermath of famine, a plea for political reform, and a call for the economic and social recovery of Ireland. Topics discussed include the role of the Scientific and Agricultural Societies, the development of the Railways, the Linen Industry, Workhouses, Emigration, and the legacy of O'Connell.
