Labourers Cottage Meakstown Dubber Lane Finglas, Co. Dublin 29-4-34 Dear Sir or Madam As a tenant of one of the above cottages I beg to make application for compensation for loss of two seasons crops. I signed an agreement on the 17 day May 1933 with the Board of Public Health for a garden or plot of ground with a cottage there on but the fact is I only got possession of the cottage. I believe under those circumstances I am entitled to a refund of rent as I am compelled to pay the same rent as the rest of the tenants. I was given to understand last year I would get my garden in October. I have now been notified by the secretary of Board of Health that I cannot get my garden until next October which leaves me without sanitary accommodation. What matters worse in this case is having a family of four young children. I have been treated most degrading considering I lost my work and evicted out of my home for my part played in the 1916 Rising been afterwards interned until the following Xmas. [Christmas] Hoping my application will receive your earnest and kind consideration. Yours Respectfully Patrick English
