Concludes with Subscription Form (not filled in). “The result of my journey, so far as Carraroe School is concerned, was most encouraging. There a complete transformation has been wrought since the daily meal was introduced since September last. The excellent schoolmistress (Mrs. Tubridy) presides each midday over one of the happiest schools in Ireland. The children are bright and fresh-skinned and clear-eyed, with rosy cheeks and happy smiles ... My three companions were greatly struck with the atmosphere at Carraroe School, and the contrast between the children there and at the neighbouring schools of Turine (on the Carraroe mainland), of Trabane, and Drim (Gorumna), and of Lettermullen is a painful one.”
