    SV Eamon De Valera (Irish President) seated at desk speaks: "At least a third of the population of that part of Ulster which has been cut off from the nation, and remember that third are resident immediately across the line which separates that part from us, want to be with us as citizens of a United Eire.

    SCU De Valera speaks: "We have no wish to coerce into a United Ireland our fellow countrymen in the northeast who differ from us, but we do ask them and all their friends to consider whether it is not their duty to play their part in bringing about a United Ireland, which is so essential now, not only merely for the betterment of relations between ourselves in Ireland, but for the establishment of friendly relations with Great Britain and for the promotion of peace in the world."
