Copy of message received here from R.I.C. Depot.

A party of insurgents are coming from the Ward they have been enquiring their way to Dublin and if they could get by the Malrboro Barracks. We do not attach any great deal of importance but we think the military authorities at V.R. Lodge can hold them. 80 or 100 of them were camped during past night at the Ward.
