Annotation

Anti-Irish satire but with a bit more content than most that makes it at least borderline utopian. The House of Lords of Britain is abolished, and the land of the peers is confiscated. Most of the peers accept an invitation to settle in the U. S. The abolition of the House of Lords makes Home Rule in Ireland possible. Under Home Rule land is confiscated and civil war erupts. The King leads the Orange Army, which quickly defeats the Irish, and the House of Lords is re-established and everything is put right.
