“Prevent looting in the ruins of the General Post Office… value in the wreck”

Received MN 6.15pm 29/4

As Secretary of the Post Office, Ireland, I have to submit the following urgent requests:-

  1. Tha such steps as are necessary be taken forthwith to prevent looting in the ruins of the General Post Office. There is probably still much of public value in the wreck – e.g. copper-and in the various safes, some of which may be intact, there are material sums of money & other articles of public & private importance.
  2. That access be given to the ruins & other points in Sackville Street for myself, Mr Gomersall, the Superintending Engineer, the Controller of the Dublin Postal District, the Controller of Telegraphs, & other officers of the Post Office known to and vouched for by us; and that the necessary passes be issued.
