Frank P. Walsh (1864 - 1939) American lawyer, "…Influenced by his early poverty, Walsh became a lifelong labor advocate and progressive democrat. With a successful law practice representing labor interests, and with increasing political involvement in progressive, reform politics at the state and local level, Walsh emerged as a national figure by 1910…In 1919 Walsh became chairman of the American Commission on Irish Independence, a group of three private citizens who went to the Paris Peace Conference with the hope of obtaining Irish independence by bringing an Irish delegation to the conference. The commission conferred with Wilson and his key adviser, Colonel Edward M. House, and also visited Ireland, where the members traveled widely and met with leaders of the revolutionary government…As chairman of the commission, Walsh gave advice to Eamon DeValera, the head of the Irish revolutionary government, during his trip to the United States in 1919. Walsh took the lead in organizing the sale of bond-certificates to raise over $5 million for the Irish government. When the Civil War erupted in Ireland in 1922, Walsh successfully represented a committee of bond holders who demanded the return of their money. Walsh continued to counsel the bond holders and to advise DeValera during the 1920s.Walsh moved to New York City in 1919 and opened law partnerships in New York and Washington, D.C., where he specialized in representing labor unions…." (Francis M. Carroll in the ANB) Dated July 6, 1927; 1 ½ pages and with a typed letterhead,' Irish Republic Bondholders Committee" and addressed to Austin J. Ford. "…Mr. Justice Peters rendered a decision in the Irish Bond case in favor of our committee, which he designated the "Hearn Committee." With details of the receivership; and that "…we have concluded that it would be best to authorize Mr. Frank P. Walsh, chief counsel in the case, to receive said allowance from the receivers and this relieve the members of the committee of all liability as well as responsibility for the said expenses…Information that may be regarded as authentic indicates that there will be no appeal from the decision of Mr. Justice Peters on the part of the Free State. Counsel advise that it might be useful if the Committee continue in existence as further action might be instituted for the recovery of the funds unjustly seized by the Free State in Dublin…" Signed by John J. Hearn in black ink; with a plain envelope. Pencil notation regarding copies being sent at the top corner of page 1. In very good condition.
