Scope and content

Routine outgoing letters, some badly faded and illegible. Approximately 1000 letters averaging 1 per page.
Includes letter to Secretary, Estate Commissioners, Dublin concerning Estate of Lady Bury Record No E. C. 8423: 'I am obliged for yours of the 23rd inst. and I note that the Commissioners are in communication with the Vendor's solicitors. If I may say so, I think it would be most advisable that the Commissioners would be in full possession of the local facts and circumstances from this point of view also. I think this would most likely facilitate a free solution of the questions that must be arising. The Commissioners may not be aware for example that the tenant of the large grass farm in the Croghan District is most willing to sell his interest, and as a matter of fact at the present time I am in communication with the tenant's representative with a view of finding out the lowest figure at which the tenant's interest can be acquired. It would be a thousand pities to let the opportunity pass of acquiring this land to relieve the frightful conditions of some of the Congested Tenants. I should be glad on behalf of the tenants, accompanied by one or two of the local clergymen to wait on you at any time to discuss the matter as I rather think the matter would be very useful.' (26 February 1912)
