November 7, 1921. Dublin. [? 27 Jan 1922]
Liam Lynch, Charlie Daly, Fitz and I have come to Vaughan's Hotel from the Mansion House where a majority has just voted to accept the Treaty. We are greeted by a drizzly rain and a solitary kilted piper who is marching back and forth in the street dreeing his weird. We go upstairs to the familiar room. In the dining room below some prominent Free State supporters are happily playing a game called "Put and Take". The four of us are silent and depressed.
