CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

of that part of the United Kingdom." Four days later, the Examiner published the following letter from Landor :

The Condition of Ireland.
SIR,
It is right and necessary that all Members of Parliament should be made acquainted with the opinion and resolution of the English people on a question the most imminent and important. In comparison with the state of Ireland, the state of Currency bears the same value as a man's pocket-book bears to his throat.
Away with idle recriminations. The wrongs of Ireland were anterior to her actual rulers, and have been (as far as the Irish themselves would allow it) redressed by them. It would be truly a cold comfort to show, as might be shown, that the worst enemies of Ireland were the worst of England also. Let Ireland no longer be called Gens ratione furens et ntentenapasta Chinirzris; let Ireland no longer be called ungrateful. Reckless and worthless men continue to claim, as being strictly due to them, a still larger sum than the eleven millions already cast among her scrambling squires, beggars, &c. Now, the Members of Parliament ought to be made aware that to the inconsiderate profuseness of their predecessors must be ascribed much of the present misery and crime of Ireland. Parish priests, Catholic and Protestant, subject to the revision of justices, would have distributed, without being paid for it, all the money in due portions, well knowing the deserts and necessities of their parishioners, and rendered equitable, if ever disposed to be otherwise, by the watchfulness of their jealousy. By this would have been saved the salaries of ten or eleven thousand agents in various grades, and more than the same number of lives.
The Crown receives from certain royalties in Ireland some f4000 a year. These royalties in the market would have brought half a million of money, and would have employed 10,000 labourers for two urgent years.
The episcopal lands in Ireland were worth lately three millions sterling. Property to the amount of f200,000 a year is held under the bishoprick of Derry. No property finds at all times such ready
