Excerpt from An Account of Ireland, Vol. 1 of 2: Statistical and Political
To point out the advantages which England might derive from Ireland, were its interests better understood, and its energies properly encouraged by sound and well digested laws, is the principal object of the facts and observations collected 1n the following sheets. They were sought after for the purpose of supplying, with authentic materials and documents, those who may be disposed hereafter to turn their thoughts to this subject; and, I hope, however defective this work may be in style, that the matter will be found important, if not interesting. It is, indeed, generally ad mitted, that the situation of Ireland, so far from being known and appre ciated in Great Britain as it ought to be, and as it easily might be, is very imperfectly understood.
