“I have heard much disquieting rumours as to mischief brewing”: John Dillon

My dear Nathan,

Enclosed is present address of Edmund Murray. They brought him before a military court last Tuesday – fined him £2 and enrolled him in the Welsh Fusiliers. His was plainly a case on which a Military Court had no foundation. Has the Irish government taken any action in this case?

Since I arrived home on Thursday – I have heard much disquieting rumours as to mischief brewing – I trust they are without foundation. I wonder whether you have any trustworthy information.

Yours sincerely,

John Dillon
