|Main Creator:||Connolly, James, 1868-1916|
In seeking the "money lately received from England in connection with the 1913-14 lock-out", Connolly writes that the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union has paid £40 per month, £400 in 10 months, for legal expenses during the lock-out. He states that as the "men now and have been the backbone of the Union...it would be shameful if they were left in the lurch now".
Letter inscribed on headed paper "Irish Transport and General Workers' Union. / Head offces: Liberty Hall, / Beresford Place, / Dublin".
