Received in Chief Secretary’s Office
Am now informed that mailboats were stopped yesterday by his Excellency’s direct orders. After consulting with his Excellency am arranging for these orders to be cancelled in which case boat from Kingstown to Holyhead can leave tonight. Boat from Holyhead to Kingstown came […] as usual last evening. Am endeavouring to ascertain what is [happening] on routes to and from North of Ireland.
