Sir,
I have much pleasure in remitting you first halves of notes of £2.10s, the amount of the first Repeal subscriptions collected in this parish. Mr O’Connell’s never to be forgotten speech in the corporation has convinced us that there is no hope for Ireland unless from a domestic legislature. He said in that speech he was proud of his countrymen. He called on us to assist him, and cold-hearted and ungrateful must the Irishman be who would not respond to his call.
We have been too long idle spectators of this bloodless battle, and are ashamed of our apathy, but from this forth are determined to exert ourselves, and to rally with the Liberator in the struggle for national independence. May the Almighty crown his efforts with success an may his declining years be rewarded by seeing his country prosperous and happy.
I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant.
Michael Hynes.
