To Maurice O'Connor Esq, Vice Provost of Ennis. Sir, We the Inhabitants of
this town, take this opportunity of expressing our most perfect approbation
of the great zeal, unwearied diligence and strict impartiality you exerted
in billeting the Soldiery in the late marches through it, being entirely
convinced that in the discharge of that duty your conduct was governed by
the most unbiased wishes for the public good. The period was awful and
alarming, far beyond any example of our time: It was not a time for langour
or parsimony, and here, Thank Heaven, there did not appear a symptom of
either: all, as if but one, animated by the same spirit of loyalty and
diligence to the best of Kings, cherished the weary soldier with liberality,
doubly comfortable because administered with cheerfulness.
