In Collection: Roger Casement Papers (2012 Release) 1882-1934
Description: He writes "I have just finished my letter of 29 to Gee, and now steal on with private lines – always very hard to write, as the two [wardens] are always here. They think I am writing a letter on the blue paper!”. He goes on to say “No man in this world ever got so much undeserved friendship as I have found these last days … It is now three days to Thursday morning and I am praying God to strengthen me and cheer me and be with me on the way… It was weak and wretched of me the other day to break down and move you so much – I have reproached myself for it – you dear wee Gee, all alone as you were.” Casement was prohibited from having paper to write on after the verdict of guilty had been pronounced at the end of June 1916 hence this letter being written on the blank side.
