My opinion is that under existing circumstances we ought not to carry it on to the House of Lords and I know that Lord Lansdowne agrees with me. If it had not been for the war and the growing scarcity of money, I should have liked very much to go on with it and I daresay we might proved successful, but at present the risk is too great. My present chauffeur is very anxious to join the Irish Motor Transport. Can he do this and what steps must he take? He is a good driver and mechanic and comes from Geashill; his name is Donaldson.

Of this award the sum of £100 allowed in respect of structural damage was arrived at by arrangement between local officer, Mr Shortall, and Mr Bouchier, by whom no doubt our reasons for reducing your claim for £141.9.7 under this heading were fully accepted... The assessment of £30 in connection with the use of the electric plant covers all charges in connection therewith. It must be borne in mind that at the beginning of the occupation by the Army the electric plant was not in working order until the military officers had the engine and dynamo overhauled and that the plant was not used continuously by the Army during the occupation. We are satisfied after the most exhaustive inquiries that our allowance for the consumption of coal is fair and reasonable...(23 November 1927).
