The Imprisonment of John Raleigh and the Support from Limerick Corporation

In response to the imprisonment of John Raleigh for assaulting Mr E.B. Levin, a Jewish individual in Limerick, a communication was received by the Town Clerk from Mr J.L. Dougher, the Under Secretary at Dublin Castle. The communication informed that the resolution passed by the Corporation in support of leniency for the sentence had been received.

The resolution requested that the sentence of one month’s imprisonment imposed on John Raleigh be remitted. The Town Clerk acknowledged the receipt of the memorial on behalf of the Lord Lieutenant to whom it was addressed. The memorial, signed by the Mayor and Town Clerk and properly sealed, was subsequently forwarded to the Lord Lieutenant. A response is expected in due course.
