Abstract
  • The correspondence of John and Catherine D'Alton is a collection of personal correspondence of some 275 letters sent between John and his wife Catherine from 1818 to 1853. John D’Alton was educated at Trinity College Dublin and was an antiquarian, barrister, Irish historian, genealogist, and biographer. IE TCD MS 2327/64 is a letter from Catherine (Kate) D’Alton (née Phillips, of Clonmore, Co. Mayo, 1815-1853) to her husband, John William Alexander D’Alton (of Bessville, Co. Meath, 1792-1867). Written during Catherine’s stay at Clonmore in 1824, between ‘Monday 9th of August’ and ’Friday 12th August’, and signed ‘Kate.’ The letter was cross written for reasons of economy: the text is written horizontally and vertically on the same page.
