Hastily written notes from Liam Pedlar to Joseph McGarrity relating to the acquisition of Thompson guns, ammunition, and money. Pedlar urges McGarrity to contact Rorke [unknown] in Washington, D.C. to send him to Ireland with either ammunition or money, and warns him that Rorke may try to back out due to the death of Harry [Boland]. Pedlar makes reference to Hugh Montague and Tommy O'Connor in relation to acquiring arms.
Peldar informs McGarrity that Dan Breen is fighting with them in Tipperary. Pedlar makes brief references to Margaret Pearse, Kathleen Clarke, O'Carolan [unknown], Mrs O'D. [unknown], McGee [unknown], and describes recent fighting that has taken place.
