In Collection: Pearse Papers, 1870-1932
Description: Writes "I thank you very much for your kind offer and willingly accept it as poor St. Enda's wants all the help she can get. The kind spirit in which you write me gives me great happiness to know that my great [?] to open St. Enda's is looked upon by my dear son's well wishers as a courageous act and all seems so willing to give a helping hand ... I am going to intrude on the friends of St. Enda's and of my dear sons to give a helping hand to buy out the old historical St. Enda's that my dear boys loved ... I have great hopes that the friends who knows the noble work and sacrifice he [Padraic Pearse] made for Irish education and also his dear brother Willie who gave up his own profession to help him in his noble cause, and who stood side by side with him for the holy cause of Easter week. May they and all their dear companions rest in peace."
