From Brigadier General Blackader 59th Divison To Chief Supt
I am forming a cordon from Ballsbridge to Merrion to prevent rebels passing in and out of Dublin City. I have been instructed to ask for the co-operation of the police to identify harmless individuals and to arrest known Rebels.
I shall be glad if you can let me have a force if possible of 50 Constables from the Merrion District. They should report to Brigadier Blackader at Pembroke Town Hall from 59th Division 7.30pm There men are wanted at once.
Phoned to Donnybrook for Supt to be complied with.
