From September 2nd 1931, a letter to each shareholder in The Irish Press from Eamon De Valera. The letter announces the launch of the paper on Saturday 5th of September as well as practical ways of supporting the paper.
I’m curious to know if it would have been signed in person by De Valera, the original looks as if it may have been but given the letter mentions 8,000 shareholders its probably unlikely.
