  1. I suggest the following (including some guesswork):

    Side note to Par. 3: for “Spoke Lord Tuam is who will put them in Round Rona at Tuam inc House. Telephoned Garr Adjt who asks me to get HQ authority for Larnes”,
    to be replaced by:
    Spoke Lord Mayor who will put them in Round Room at Mansion House. Telephoned Garr Adjt who asks me to get HQ authority for rations.

    Par. 4: “Mr Douglas prints not screening. In weekly payment to he made to wardens.
    Governance of Provisions instructed to make arrangements with Canal Barracks.”,
    to be replaced by:
    Mr Douglas points out not receiving – for weekly payment to be made to warders.
    Side note: Governors of Prisons instructed to make arrangements with local banks.

    Par, 5: Manager of Borstal Institution at Clonmel, in place of ‘Carrick’, and ‘warders’ in place of ‘wardens’ [Comment: the only Borstal in Ireland in 1916 was in Clonmel.]
