Excerpt from The Condition of Women and Children Among the Celtic, Gothic, and Other Nations
Denied education by English penal laws, the Irish are called igmormzt and superstitious. Robbed of all but honor, they are called poor and dirty low Irish. Defrauded of their wages, the Irish laborers are called lazy by the idle English gang of armed banditti. Robbed of their inheritance, the Irish farmers are driven forth into the sea as dishonest rascals if they cannot meet the demands of landlord, and church, and state. Defeated by the superior resources, as well as by the broken treaties, of Albion, and with the bayonet ever at his throat, and the Orange bloodhound ever at his heels, the Irishman is called unprogressive.
