Description: Of the ten remaining Irish prisoners, 4 are in solitary confinement. The four in solitary are soon to be moved to Frongoch, while the remaining 6 have been told they're to be sent to Reading Gaol, which they find upsetting, as they don't wish to be separated from the other prisoners. Among the Irish prisoners not in solitary confinement is Joseph MacBride described as an "old man, broken in sorrow over his younger brother's [John McBride's] execution. The letter also mentions that "Conscientious objectors" are also now in Wakefield and "are being treated dreadfully, cuffed, kicked & lashed!! Our own foolish men are full of sympathy for them & are getting themselves in trouble over showing them sympathy." .
