Copy outgoing letters from Toler Roberts Garvey (Junior)

Includes a letter from Toler R. Garvey, land agent in Birr to client, V. J. E. Ryan who owns property in Sackville Street, the scene of some of the worst fighting in the Rising on 10 May 1916:

‘I hear that your house in Sackville Street is not seriously damaged only pitted by rifle and machine gunfire and in any case your rent is I should say quite safe. The Rebellion is all over and it’s merely a case of rounding up now, but [sic] all the futile reprisals upon martial law being maintained until this conspiracy and all its sympathisers are thoroughly crushed.’

Garvey, Toler Roberts, Jr
