The First Documents of the newly proclaimed Republic in the handwriting of Padraig Pearse and issued on the Tuesday morning, collected by Joe Stanley for publication in his four page paper The Irish War News - to let the world know that Ireland was rising once again.

One of the only documents issued by the Rebels from within the G.P.O. as the surrender document was written outside and after the G.P.O was vacated.

Normally of neat hand but here with insertions and erasures illustrating the intensity of the hour- the original handwriting of Padraig Pearse is presented in full in the book Joe Stanley Printer to The Rising.
