PREFACE. 



i 



cir remnrlES will be nec^s^aty in plaining, m its completed 
MimCf before the public, n memoir alE-cnHy imup(I in a. Bcrinl 
form. From works long since given to the vi'ortd — document 
taty papers — manusmpta for the ftrst lime printed —and privuiG 
deliiils ol men alUI livin":, tind who theniselvea enacted a iend- 
g p^rt during that troubled era, this history hoa been com- 
fl^. 
The records of ihe Insnrrection of \~'lf^, with rate exceptions, 
•I'c been written by ardent p artisans^ wlio, yieldinj^ to a puli- 
tical biHfir have coloured the narrutivc of the tranaactloiia of 
ittv*e diHlraclpd timt-e, and deluded events, rather 4S they 
wisbed they bhuuld have been, than in reality as tbey i^ere» 
Care has been tuken to coltate these conElictin;^ t(uti;inentE, 
atid, by strict ruipartialiiy, reach tnitb as nearly ^b it guu be 
•nived ELt. That thi> author lian been sueccaiiful in the aUempt, 
he would infer by an Iri-sh conch^aioii. UUru. partisaua — TyriLiu 
and Trojan — have expressed dUsatis faction, and impugned liis 
tmpartinlily ; Protestant remonstrancea been accompanied by 
Roman Catholic complaints ; one party armignin^ him of a se- 
cret leaning to the priticiplca of Hscendancy, met, on the other 
side, by a countercbarge of indiilgency towards the disaffected. 
" Every man in Ireland 19 a partUa^n/' was tlie oLiServaiion 
of an intelligent foreigner — and the cbservution is contct. 
Tor ttie moderate of both feecLionft, tliia wurlt hab bteu com- 

Cpded ; and, small an that uection may be^ their approval wdl 
be perfectly latiitfacloiy to 
THE AUTRUH.
