Trang 70 - But the best way of convincing you of my indulgence, will be, if I live, to visit you in Ireland, and act there as much in my own way as you did here in yours.
Trang 189 - Two or three of them have distinguished themselves in parliament ; and you will own in a very uncommon manner, when I tell you it is by their asserting of independency, and contempt of corruption.
