CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

to' the Queen, written by Landor, and signed by a number of residents at Bath. " We are happy," said the Examiner, " to lay before our readers an argument so temperate and forcible. Men of all parties may read it with advantage.' The text of the Memorial was as follows:

Mr O'Connell's Imprisonment.
" We, the undersigned, inhabitants of Bath, yielding to none in loyalty toward your gracious Majesty or in veneration of our established laws, crave to approach the throne with our petition.
We pray of your gracious Majesty that the Royal mercy may be extended to Daniel O'Connell, against whom a verdict of 'Guilty' was delivered in Dublin on a charge of conspiracy, and who at this time is suffering the penalty of fine and imprisonment.
We presume not to question the justice of the sentence, nor the composition of the jury; but we implore your Majesty's pardon of the offence on these considerations. '
First. That the Act of Union, which we hope will be indissoluble, was brought about by such practices as would disfranchise any borough in England.
Secondly. That Ireland did not obtain by it such advantages as were obtained by Scotland; namely, that the religion of the majority should be the established religion of the land.
We reflect with shame and sorrow that Ireland at the present hour is treated less liberally in regard to religion than Greece was treated under the dominion of the Turks, which dominion she was aided in overthrowing by the arms of England. And yet the Turks do not ` profess and call themselves Christians.'
We remember by what evil counsels two millions of British subjects in America were severed from the dominion of England. They had incomparably less cause of complaint than, according to the public opinion of Europe, Ireland always had, and has : on the correctness of which opinion it is not our duty or our wish to speak. Two millions, who had no free states to sympathise with them, were able, contrary to the expectation of many wise and experienced
