Rhocies a&sures the Irish leader of large additinnal colonial support to the Irish bo.iic rule sóbeme if the Irish deputies mili retain representaron at London, this plan furnishing a precedent for colonial representaron at the English capital. Paruell replied that the Irish wished to receive Gladstone's Lili in the same spirit in vvhieh it was offered in good will, but trusted if the Liberal leader, in nis next home rule mensure, irovided for retention of represeutation in London the Irish members would eheerfully concur; valuing the position that would be given thein in the imperial system.
