Excerpt from Ireland, Vol. 3: Historical and Statistical
This observation, if well founded, cuts at the root of some heavy labours which have been prosecuted for several years in Ireland without producing any results commensurate with the public desire expressed, or the public expense incurred on the occasion. There has been and there still is a loud demand in that country for an accurate survey and valuation Of the lands of the whole country. The proprietors in making this call seem to have reasoned thus - Let the government ascertain the true value of the land, and as it will then be easy to calculate what it will fairly bear for rent and taxation, room will no longer be left for exaction, or any of those disagreements between landlord and tenant which have led to so many disturbances and crimes. Much has been done to gratify the prevailing wish in this respect, but the consequent degree of satisfaction appears small indeed.
