In Collection: Correspondence relating to the trial and release of Seán MacEntee, 1916-1917;
Description: Monteagle remarks to Hanna that he tried to "...find you at the Four Courts" to discuss MacEntee's " with you but failing this, I should be much obliged if you would kindly give me your opinion if you have a sufficiently clear recollection of the case". In the enclosed letter Monteagle writes to Duke that while he has "only once seen [Séan MacEntee] at his trial by court-martial" and that he "heard the latter half of his trial and formed a very strong opinion that, though he was undoubtedly technically guilty of murder, as he was engaged in criminal proceeding in the course of which the policeman [Constable McGee] was shot, he was not morally guilty, and is indeed an exceptionally high-minded man, however misguided".
