Bourke expresses his anger that O'Brien focused so much attention on a letter's typsecript format, writing "Your letter gives one the impression that I have been impertinent or audacious in being so business-like and up to date as to have the temerity to avail myself of a Typewriter in my correspondence with the unapproachable "Brass-hats" at Headquarters".
Comprises two copies of the letter, one with annotations in O'Brien's hand.
