Autograph letter from Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston, to his land agent Joseph Kincaid, regarding land near railway terminus [Kingsbridge Station now Heuston Station] and access to the Royal Kilmainham Hospital, Dublin,
January 30 1846.
|Main Creator:||Palmerston, Henry John Temple, Viscount, 1784-1865|
ALS to Joseph Kincaid sending him "the other halves of the two Bank of Ireland notes which have been found ... with regard to the application of the [Dublin &] Cashel Company for a strip of ground opposite to their [Kingsbridge] Terminus, I have no objection ..." and he details exactly where the strip is to be bounded and says he would not require payment "on condition that they should never erect any Building whatever, but should keep it as an open space always free to the Public, in short that it should be thrown into the public Roads. This Stipulation is important, because I think that sooner or later a public Road will be carried through my long meadow to make an easier access to the Railway Station, and to give a better and more direct approach to Kilmainham Hospital ...", he continues with further details of his plans for the land and ends "What do you hear about the Potato Rot? our accounts are so contradictory that ones does not know what to believe...".
