All the landlords are cleared out of Ireland now. ...

All the landlords are cleared out of Ireland now. They were very hard on the tenants. They evicted a lot of the tenants who were not able to pay their rent. Some of them had to go to the union hospital and some of them used to get a little house from other people.
The time the war was in Ireland the officers that fought and won the battle were made the landlords after that.
In those days the people were very poor and the rent was very high and they had no mercy to get from the landlords so they are much better off since the Land Commission took up the land.
