In Collection: Roger Casement Papers (2012 Release) 1882-1934
Description: Note on verso of Notice of Final Appeal in Casement's hand about his trial being a farce: "The trial was a farce from start to finish & this "Judgement" of the Bench a judgement to order. I need only point out one reason Mr. Justice Darling gave for discussing the appeal - viz - that I owed allegiance wherever I went - that "he was the King's liege man wherever he went & could violate his allegiance ... abroad as much as at home" This is the doctrine of allegiance but I was tried not on doctrine but by the Statute".
