To the Editor "Nationalist and Leinster
Stradbally, 26th October, 1920.
Dear Sir - A report having been
circulated that my son, M. J. Colgan, the Petty Sessions Clerk of
Strabally, has joined the "Black and Tans". I beg to give that malicious
report an unqualified contradiction.
He never for a moment entertained a
thought of joining that corps; and there are several respectable men in
this town who can verify what I say, as they have been in his company
for a considerable time during the past few days.
Thanking you in anticipation, I am, Mr.
Editor, your obedient servant, M. Colgan.
