O'Brien, who proposes to write about events on the 17th of February 1903 so as to have an accurate record, refers to letters from James Connolly to John Carstairs Matheson and how Connolly "realised he was responsible for the split". He also quotes Eamon De Valera as saying "I am now satisfied that James Connolly was the greatest influence in Easter Week", and refers to the recent death of Pat Ennis.
Letter begins with page number 7.
