Letterbook 1914

Copies of approximately 1000 outgoing letters, averaging at 1 per page. Some letters are illegible due to fading. Contains many letters relating to the sale of the Purdon Estate, Philipstown.
Also includes letter to John Gorman, Ballinagar, Clonmore, Tullamore: 'I have yours of the 4th instant and note contents. I think the Geashill Vigilance Committee is acting properly in converting itself into a branch of the National Organisation. It will thus become entitled to have the influence of that powerful organisation exercised on its behalf. I shall send a copy of the Memorial to headquarters. I may have an opportunity of discussing the matter with the Chairman of the Committee in the near future. Owing to the long vacation which is now on - and to the war scare now naturally absolving everyone's attention - you may take it that no progress can be made for the next 3 months. (5 August 1914)

Letterbook 1914-1915

Copies of approximately 1000 letters, averaging 1 per page. Some letters illegible due to fading. Contains many letters relating to ongoing sale of the Purdon Estate, Philipstown (Daingean) as well as letters relating to the Geashill Cattle Drive.
Includes letter to R. F. Barry, Esq., Crown Solicitor re The King v Adams and 45 others Geashill Case: 'I give you on annexed page particulars of the rail fare paid by the 45 defendants to take them to Kingsbridge for their trial in December last. There were 46 charged, but one, Thomas Hynes, was a prisoner and was conveyed up by the Authorities. Two witnesses were also brought up, namely, Father MacDonald and Dr. Barry of Philipstown, and both were examined. I also include their single fares. The accused and the witnesses had, of course, to be conveyed to Green Street, and I put £1 down for this though it would not probably nearly cover it as several of them took cars from the station. There can be no controversy however about the railway fares. I also give the figure of the return fares in case these are allowed. The parties had to come back, and as a matter of fact, were kept in Dublin two days; but I do not think these expenses are payable. I trust you will be able to kindly have whatever they are legally entitled to paid to them through me.' (29 March 1915)
