Dear Adams,

Your letter of the 5th has just reached me this morning, I am not likely to forget you and have often wondered what you were doing, there is no man I know of whom I would be more willing to help in any way in my power. I am writing to Capt. Ensor. urging your claims for consideration, and asking him if it would help if I saw some of the people at Headquarters in Belfast here.

I will write you again when I hear from Capt. Ensor.

Yours faithfully,

D. Graham Shillington

Capt Ensor



Dear Major Shillington

With reference to your letter about John Adams. Very few recruits are being taken on now and I have almost 300 waiting application so you can see there are lots waiting long over two months.

From your recommendation this seems a very suitable an and will give him a call as soon as possible.

I give every preference to old ninth men.

Wishing you every luck in the new year.

Yrs sincerely
