Description

Senator James G. Douglas, a Dublin business and and a Quaker and Irish nationalist, was active in the Irish White Cross, 1920-22. Appointed by Michael Collins as a member of the committee which prepared drafts for the first Irish constitution in 1922. He was a member of Seanad Eireann in 1922-36, 1938-43 and 1944-54. These memoirs relate his involvement in the events of 1916-26. He casts fresh light on some events - revealing for example his secret meetings with De Valera in the closing stages of the Civil War.
