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. Digitised here are: -- IE TCD MS 2327/64, a letter from Catherine (Kate) to her husband, John. Written during Catherine’s stay at Clonmore in 1824, between ‘Monday 9th of August’ and ’Friday 12th August’. -- IE TCD MS 2327/87, a letter from John to his wife, Catherine (Kate). Written on the 5th and 6th of September 1819 (Mullingar and Kealtown). John D’Alton reflects on his boat journey northwestbound along the Royal Canal from Dublin, and advises Catherine on how to spend the £15 he has sent her.
