Letter from Eamon de Valera to Malcolm MacDonald (London)
(Personal and Secret) (Copy)

Dublin, 17 October 1936

Dear Mr. MacDonald,

I have waited until you had returned from Geneva to reply to your personal letter of the 17th September.

I saw Mr. Dulanty recently, and he will communicate to you my views on the points raised in Sir Warren Fisher's letter. When he has done so, I believe you will agree that detailed conversations between groups of Civil Servants, apart from the question of publicity, would not have materially advanced the position. I am satisfied that, until an agreement in principle has been reached on the major matters at issue, no useful purpose can be served by such conversations.

With kind regards,
Yours very sincerely,
[copy letter unsigned]
