The draft manuscript letter [dated 8 May 1924] sent by Hugh Kennedy to the Secretary of the Department of Finance refers to the fact that his pay is being withheld by the department. The typed letter to the Secretary of the Department of Finance [on headed paper from the Supreme Court, Chief Justice's Chamber [the latter three words typed into the existing header], Secretary's Office, The Castle, Dublin, 21 June 1924] refers to accounts in respect of journeys to London in 1922/23. The typed letter to Secretary of the Department of External Affairs is terse in tone. On headed paper "Saorstát Éireann, Courts of Justice, The Castle, Dublin" and dated 15 September 1924, Kennedy declines to pay a refund of one pound and four pence that they allege was overpaid for a hotel and other expenses during his visit as part of the delegation to the League of Nations in September 1923, saying he will issue a counter-claim against the department as he received no money from the Ministry and "expended a considerable sum of my own money". .."So far from my being indebted to the Ministry, the Ministry is indebted to me...".
