Michael Collins, School Essay, Aged 13, 1904
"The Colonists as our rivals in Outdoor Sports"
The theme of the essay possibly set by the schoolmaster.
The essay was awarded 310 marks out of 600; the verdict: "Fair, but too short. Punctuate carefully, & look after your writing which is weak'".
The essay came from Michael's sister Kitty Sheridan. There is a note on rear of the final page signed by Kitty, "March 1904 when he was 13 and I was 15 - 16".
