Originally the letter was given to Professor John V. Kelleher (Harvard) by Henry Shattuck. Kelleher passed the letter on to Professor Ó Coileán at UCC.
Born in Cork in 1798, he was an Irish antiquary whose collections of songs and legends formed a storehouse for writers of the Irish literary revival. From 1819 he worked as a clerk for the Admiralty. He died in London in 1854.
