DI Boyle wires through the CI Sligo that he has received information that military and police barracks there will be sized by co. Sligo Sinn Feiners. That loopholes of military barrack dominate the RIC Barracks and the town and that it is desirable that 50 soldiers should occupy the Barracks. He desires me to inform you.

Re your wire- let CI if he thinks fit assemble a force to occupy military barrack and if necessary breaking up some useless out stations.
