From the Minutes of the General Council Meetings of October 26 and November 9, 1869.

On the Refusal by the English Press to take Notice of the Growth of Sympathy with Ireland among English Workers and on the Opening of the Debate on the Irish Question, Documents of the First International 1869, Record of the Speech and Content of the Letter. From the Minutes of the General Council Meetings of October 26 and November 9, 1869. In Marx and Engels on Ireland, Progress Publishers, Moscow 1971. Online in the Marx-Engels Archive, Marxists Internet Archive.

Marx said the principal thing was whatever was passed would be suppressed by the London press. The main feature of the demonstration had been ignored, it was that at least a part of the English working class had lost their prejudice against the Irish.

La manifestation en question est rapportée par Yvonne Kapp dans Kapp 1977a, p. 117. Elle y cite aussi ce jugement de Marx, p. 117-118. Idem dans Holmes 2014, p. 98. Cela tempère dans une certaine mesure le jugement plus général dans la lettre à Meyer et à Vogt six mois plus tard.
