Letter from John N. Scallan, Principal Solicitor at John A. Sinnott & Co., to his solicitor uncle in Dublin following up on previous correspondence. See previous blog.

My dear Uncle John,
Many thanks for your letter which has given me a good deal of information. I am obliged for the trouble you took. The Solicitors along with myself have prepared a Memorial which we are forwarding to the Under-Secretary, setting out the amounts of the Commandeered Goods in a Schedule to same.

John N. Scallan
