§ MR. HEALY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. Henry O'Mahony, an American citizen, has been prevented by the Governor of Monaghan Gaol from writing to the United States representatives and has been told that he cannot make complaints as to his treatment except through the Chief Secretary?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER,
in reply, said, there was no truth in the statement that Mr. O'Mahony had been prevented from writing to the Representative of the United States.
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
said, he thought the hon. Member's Question related to communications with the United States. It was true that the Governor of the gaol informed Mr. O'Mahony that he could address the Chief Secretary if he had any complaint to make; but Mr. O'Mahony replied that he "would have nothing to do with the Chief Secretary." Had he complied 1809 with the regulations, his letters would have been duly forwarded.
