Stan Kelly-Bootle [ to JM "mysteriously, he is named Daniel O'Connell."] Iím deeply puzzled. No conceivable mystery about one of Irelandís most renowned rebel politicians! Důnal ” Conaill (6 August 1775 Ė 15 May 1847; English spelling: Daniel O'Connell
JM: It was wonderful to get rich information about Daniel O'Connell and therefore your interpretation of my "mystery" enriched us all. Actually this exclamation was merely applicable to the Spanish translation that mentioned Daniel in a paragraph where he was not so named in the original (perhaps this reveals the translators enthusiasm about him?).
Alexey, why do you associate decapitation to the Mascodagama act? 
Thanks for the poems and translations.
