View more information ...
In Collection: Mary Hutton Papers, 1884-1942.
Description: Ní Ógáin writes to Mrs. Hutton about the petition for Roger Casement's reprieve, enclosing copies to be sent to various named people, and the signed documents to be returned to Miss Bannister. She mentions that Lady Ottoline Morrell has approached the Prime Minister on Casement's behalf, without success.

Also included are copies of two typed petitions. The first is addressed to the Secretary of State for the Home Department and begs that his Majesty will take into consideration the work done by Casement in Africa and South America on behalf of subjugated people. The second petition, while repudiating Casement's actions, suggests that enough blood has been shed during and after the Easter Rebellion, and that another execution so long after those earlier in the year, risks arousing popular feeling against the government.
