The other day there left Dublin for Galway by the Midland railroad, a respectable young man who could not speak or understand one word of English. He has never spoken any other language than Irish.
He had been a fortnight in Dublin and during that time required, in the capital of his native country, to be accompanied everywhere by an interpreter.
