Letter from Mr. de Valera to Mr. Lloyd George reading: "Sir, The desire you express on the part of the British Government to end the centuries of conflict between the people of these two islands and to establish relations of neighbourly harmony, is the genuine desire of the people of Ireland. I have consulted with my colleagues & secured the views of representatives of the minority of our nation in regard to the invitation you have sent me.
