SIR,—May I draw your readers' attention to the following points of interest about the design of the new Irish Constitution stamp which you published last week?

The open book on the stand symbolizes the Constitution, and the Irish words printed across the pages. (" In the name of the Most Holy Trinity ") are the opening words to the Preamble; on the lower part of the stand arc represented the coats of arms of the four provinces of Ireland; the seated woman is Ireland, and the words at the bottom of 'the stamp mean "Constitution of Ireland."
