Abstract: I have in my collection a few envelopes with censorship marks of the 1914-1918 World War which I think are worth reproducing. They are addressed to the Honourable Dr Enrico Mizzi who was court-marshalled in 1917 under the Malta Defence Regulations issued on 14 August 1916 by Order in Council. The Governor was given wide discretionary powers to arrest and court martial even civilians. Enrico Mizzi was born on 20 September 1885 in Valletta, son of Fortunato and the Italian Maria Sofia Fogliero de Luna. In 1903 he entered the University of Malta where he won a prize for Italian Literature. He went to Italy in 1907 to read Law at the Regia Universita di Roma (La Sapienza). He graduated LL.D. at the Universita di Urbino and obtained his Warrant to practise Law in Malta in 1916. However, he dedicated his life to journalism as from 1904. ltalianate by education and upbringing, he openly professed his love for Italy, he hated the British colonialism, and strongly opposed the substitution of the Italian language by that of Britain. He was named by Giovanni Bonello 'the greatest of all Maltese'. [excerpt]
