Maxwell writing to Lord French concerning casualties

Abstract: Copy of typescript report from Maxwell to Lord French concerning casualties 'fairly heavy but under the circumstances might very well have been more'. Notes that 'Rebels today are surrendering freely, we have already some 600 in custody'. Mentions Countess Markievitch, Enniscorthy, Ashbourne, commenting that 'Any holding out tomorrow in Dublin will be blown off the face of the earth and the country will be dealt with by flying columns which are now being organised'. Gives credit to General Friend, Brigadier-General Lowe and Colonel B. Portal.
