In Collection: Letters from Caitlín Brugha, neé Kingston, to Edmund Downey, 1922-1927
Description: The prevailing tone of this letter is cool - Downey has just joined Fianna Fáil. Caitlín Brugha writes "In order to have the position clear, I got a copy of the guarantees required by Sinn Féin. Read in cold print it amounts to the SF [Sinn Féin] programme without any deviation. I understood that De Valera had declared that if Fianna Fáil were to get a majority he would set up a Republican government. Now I understand that he has declared that majority or minority he was prepared to take over the Government, which in plain language is the Treaty. You will understand that it is not possible for [Sinn] Féin to cooperate with Fianna Fáil, if De Valera speaks for all its members".
