Letter about Roger Casement's sentence (29 june 1916)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle on 29 june 1916 from Windlesham, Crowborough.


June 29 /16


No man with any heart or perception could read your description of Roger Casement's death sentence without shame and disgust. Such words in an English paper are likely to do more enduring political harm than ever your misguided Casement achieved. They will certainly be exploited by every enemy of England from Dublin to San Francisco.

Yours faithfully

Arthur Conan Doyle
