Other correspondents include Fr. James Routledge (St. Dunstan’s, Moston, Manchester), Lillian Metge (Yew Tree House, Chester Road, Erdington, Birmingham, reverse of the letter has a printed handbill by Metge titled ‘No Vote – No Register’), Eoin O’Mahony (auditor, university philosophical society, Cork), H.S.

The first item in the volume is a letter from Father Rope to Fr. Senan and refers to his archive of correspondence from Aodh de Blacam which he will send to the friar.
