O'Brien writes that the conference was postponed because "the branches are sleeping soundly - if not actually dead". He refers to the proposed organisation as "a determination to down the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union at all costs". He finishes by referring to "the Wexford affair", which may be a reference to a labour dispute in that town (see MS 15,670/1-5).
Letter addressed from "Wm O'Brien, / 43 Belvidere Place.".
