7 December 1921

I am meeting the Southern Unionists. I agree that a scheme should be devised to givem them a full share of representation in the first Chamber of the Irish Parliament, and we will also consult them regarding the constitution of the Upper Chamber and undertake that their interests will be duly represented.

I take this opportunity of saying we desire the co-operation of the Unionists, in common with all other sections of the Irish nation, in raising the structure and shaping the destiny of the Irish Free State. We look for assistance in the same spirit of understanding and goodwill which we will show towards their traditions and interests.
