From Supt C To Chief Supt

Sniping by military was very brisk about an hour ago. I went up Talbot Street with a military escort and I believe Hickeys the Drapers is on fire. I have no news from Sackville Street. I sent out twelve men to assist the military at 1pm to-day four of them have returned at present the others are alright. I have two men on plain clothes duty at Amiens Street.
