Daniel O’Connell [1775-1847], ‘The Liberator’
An interesting collection of four autograph signed letters to his friend and accountant Ignatius O’Callaghan, one dated 1829 and three in 1839, the four with associated address sheets, one marked Confidential, all with seals. One letter dated 7 January 1839 asks O’Callaghan to attend to vouch a set of accounts before a meeting of Precursors, as ‘it is important that the public should have the testimony of men of the first character as to the correctness of the accounts’; two others seeking to arrange meetings urgently, the last also about financial matters.
An interesting collection, indicating O’Connell’s concern with financial probity, all with good clear signatures.
