Maxwell writing to Asquith concerning Bishop O'Dwyer of Limerick

Abstract: Typescript copy from [Maxwell] Headquarters, Irish Command to Asquith concerning the Bishop O'Dwyer of Limerick 'the only dignitary of the R.C. Church who has taken up this attitude'. Refers to correspondence he sent to the Cork Examiner which 'has done some harm and incited others to defy authority'. Reports that masses are being said for those who have died or been executed. Considers that 'if His Holiness the Pope could be induced to advise the Cardinal Archbishop and Bishops in Ireland to prevent Priests from mixing themselves up with matters, political, seditious or unconnected with their spiritual position, some good might come of it'.
