No. 139 UCDA P150/151

Eamon de Valera to Michael Collins (Dublin)
(Secret) (Copy)

Grosvenor Hotel, London, 15 July 1921

I am sure you are anxious to hear whether any important developments have taken place. The position is simply this - that L.G. is developing a proposal which he wishes me to bring in my pocket as a proposal to the Irish Nation for its consideration. The meetings have been between us two alone as principals. The idea on which we the Ministry started out remains unchanged.

You will be glad to know that I am not dissatisfied with the general situation.

The proposal will be theirs - we will be free to consider it without prejudice.

Hope to see you about the middle of the week.

(initialled) DeV

P.S. We must put back D.[ail] meeting. Am writing D.[iarmuid] O'H.[Eigeartaigh]
