Lot of 2. Letter and circular addressed to Hon. James W. Nye of Carson City (governor at this point) from the Office of the Irish National Fair. Dateline Chicago, Feb. 4, 1864. Soliciting a donation from Nye as one of the "friends of the oppressed." The fair was being proposed by the Fenian Brotherhood, "a Society having for its object the amelioration of the condition of the People of Ireland and the elevation of their Country to National Independence." The fair was to be held March 28th at the principal halls of Chicago. The circular mentions the "present struggle for Liberty in Poland" as "one which all true Irishmen desire to emulate, for the despotism of Russia is only typically illustrative of that English yoke in Ireland we seek to overthrow."
