George Montgomery of Wednesbury to Dublin, and was restricted to the West Midlands. Heinrick's survey was both the most extensive and intensive investigation of the Irish community prior to publication of Denvir's volume.

Into this vortex of vice hundreds are drawn who sink to rise no more. Had we statistics of the destruction of Irish life and the wreck of Irish morals consequent in the migration of the people to England, the record would be something fearful to contemplate. And yet our people are in every moral attribute infinitely superior to the race among whom their lot is cast. I shall have more to add in a future paper on this head, and wish for the present to confine myself to a contrast of the phases of Irish life to be found in London and a reference to the Irish influences which aid the Imperial system in accomplishing results alike destructive of prosperity at home and of the lives and morals of the expatriated people.
