Excerpt from The Two Irish Nations: An Essay on Home Rule
Even while occupied with his great task of writing the "Life of Lord Beaconsfield," William Flavelle Monypenny was able, from time to time, to make valued contributions to the columns of The Times. He spent the earlier months of the year 1912 in Ireland as the papers Special Correspondent, and then wrote the series of articles which form Part I. of this volume. The articles were published in The Times between the dates of January 27 and April 15, 1912;under the title which they now bear, namely - "Ireland and Home Rule." The articles which form Part II. were published almost immediately after the conclusion of the former series, namely on April 26, 27, 29, and 30, 1912.In his work as a journalist, Mr. Monypenny was always intensely in earnest and inspired by high and patriotic ideas. These fourteen articles represent the last of a long series of public services which he rendered with his pen.
It was his desire that they should be re-issued in a more permanent form, an honour to which their merit obviously entitles them.
