Letter from Mary MacSwiney to Joseph McGarrity, discussing Éamon de Valera and how he would never do anything to "disgrace the country" despite "letting down the Government of the Republic", how the current "matter" could benefit the Republic if "handled wisely", and how she is sending the enclosed letters to her friends in the US [not extant],
[1926?] April 16.
|Main Creator:||MacSwiney, Mary, 1872-1942|
Manuscript in black ink on plain paper.
Letter addressed from: "Cork".
Written on letter in pencil in a handwriting that is not Mary MacSwiney's: "Mary MacSwiney to Éamon de Valera" although the recipient of the letter is Joseph McGarrity.
Letter discusses how unfortunate it was for Ireland that Éamon de Valera was unable to "gain the majority for this compromise either in the Ard Fheis or in Dail Éireann", a possible reference to the Sinn Féin Ard Fheis of 9 March 1926.
The letter that Mary MacSwiney says she is sending to friends in the US is possibly MS 17,461/7.
