'How Not To Do It', 1869. The Fenian movement was still causing the British Government problems. The movement had not been pacified by the measures introduced through the recent Irish Bill, and continued to agitate in the most threatening manner for the release of those men imprisoned as a result of the bombing outrages at the end of the previous year. To the Fenians, these men were patriots, not terrorists. Britannia, according to Mr Punch, should stand firm against such threats. From Punch, or the London Charivari, October 23, 1869.
