Excerpt from Reasons for Adopting an Union, Between Ireland, and Great Britain
One author hates it as his opinion that the Country's vengeance would be rouzed by the bare mention of fuch a meafure, and, after de fcribing, with all due horror, the miferable condition to which we have been reduced, atlas, who, under fuch circumiiances, will ven ture to exprefs in the honefi ter'ms Cl Virtuous indignation his opinion on the annihilation of our Parliament? I lhould be glad to know from this writer, whether the terms, in which he has expreffed himfelf, be honeﬂ, or the in dignation he has fhewn, be virtuous? If they are, why have the Triangles and the Gallows, whofe elicits he deplores in fuch truly me lancholy firains, had no effect upon him? The truth is: thefe angry patriots mean not half they fay; for, in a few pages after, the fame author defcribes the present fituation of this Country to be tranquillized and happy; and, through all that remains of his Pamphlet, feems never once to have dreamt of the Gallows or the Triangle.
