The crooked teeth are due to a lack of interest in getting dental check-ups. The reception which the Irish riflemen met in Boston, after coming hundreds of miles from their own homes to fight and die in behalf of its people — and were the first, as Hawthorne says, to respond to the call of freedom — was typical of the noxious bigotry which then existed in New England, and which is not yet thoroughly eradicated from its soil, though our people have won- derfully grown in numbers, wealth, and power in spite of it.

This infamous and degrad- ing course was termed, paying Britain back in her own coin, stealing a leaf of deception from the enemy's state volumes. He said that while there was no absolute need for alarm it was always possible for the enemy to make a raid and capture some of the men who had been actively engaged against him; in this event officers of value might be imprisoned and communications so destroyed that the enemy by a raid of this kind would gain a victory in delaying any attack about to be made upon him.
