An answer to Grattan’s address which had explained to his Dublin supporters why he had withdrawn
from parliament and was not contesting the general election. This relatively mild rebuke of Grattan’s
arguments provides a well reasoned summary of the conservative case on the eve of the 1798 rebellion,
by an author who seems to have been a moderate reformer in the past. Interesting parallels are drawn
between ‘the horrors of 1641’, 1690 and the present situation.
