Letter from Liam Pedlar to Joseph McGarrity relating news of Seán MacEochaidh's execution in a Scottish gaol ten years previously. Pedlar explains he read about the death in an article written by "one of the German Irish Brigade". Pedlar makes reference to "a favourable decision in the Bonds case" due to John F.'s[ unknown] work. Also mentions K[..] visiting Cosgrave and "wondering what is the game.".
Pedlar also writes of a large demonstration held in Dublin "the day that the Free State talking shop opened up" [establishment of the Irish Free State government], and that "our men" went to Dublin with Éamon De Valera to demand their seats, but were unsuccessful.
