TO THE FIRST EDITION.
TO most readers it will probably appear a work of supereFogation, in a country and an age so remote from the scene and the era of the events which are discussed in this Vindication, to investigate the subjects it embraces. The reasons, however, are powerful, and fully justify the undertaking,
The history of Ireland is almost one solid mass of falsehood and imposture, erected, particularly during the seventeenth century, on the basis of fraud and perjury ;-fraud and perjury so obvious, 50 stupid, and so flagitious, that, to the most superficial observer, it must be a subject of inexpressible astonishment how it ever gained currency.
Nevertheless, from such foul and polluted sources alone, the knowledge of that history is derived by nine-tenths of those who have condescended to study it: and, however extravagant it may appear, it is nevertheless a serious truth, that a large portion even of those who pride themselves on their literary acquirements, are almost as ignorant of the affairs of Ireland, from the twelfth to the eighteenth century, as of those of Arabia or Japan. They are, in fact, in a worse state. With respect to the details of the history of the latter nations, they are barely ignorant: but, with respect to Ireland, almost all they know is wholly untrue. They give full faith and confidence to some of the most extravagant and spurious stories that ever were ushered on the world, to delude and deceive mankind, under the prostituted name of histories.
The terrific tales that are recorded of the events of the civil war of 1641, have sowed, and still continue to sow, a copious seed of the most vulgar and rancorous prejudices in the mind of man against his fellow man, which have sprouted forth with most pernicious luxuriance, and soured in the breasts of many the sweet milk of human kirdress towards those with whom they are in daily habits of association. These prejudices are too generally' prevalent in the British dominions.
In Ireland, they have produced the most baleful consequences, and still åfford some sort of countenance to the continuance of the remnant of the laws “to prevent the growth of popery”-an odinus code, by which rapide, cruelty, and demoralization have been legally systematized, and every principle of honour, honcsty, good faith, justice, and sound policy, violated.
Many of these prejudices have been transplanted from their
