Notes:

Charles Gavan Duffy, publisher of The Nation, wrote this defense of John Mitchel's controversial November 22, 1845 Nation article of the same title. It was of little avail: Duffy was charged with seditious libel in 1846 for publishing Mitchel's article, but a hung jury failed to convict him.

Mitchel mentions this episode briefly in The Last Conquest of Ireland (Perhaps), pp. 110-111. Duffy provides a much richer account in his Four Years of Irish History, pp. 116-124 and 149-159.

Encoding Description

Building a corpus of historical non-fiction texts encoded at a reading level.

TEI encoding is based on the UW-Madison Libraries Guidelines for Markup of Electronic Texts at the Reading Level (Version 2.0: http://uwdcc.library.wisc.edu/resources/etext/TEIGuidelines.shtml), with the addition of <sic>, <name> elements.

No corrections have been made to the source text.

All quotation marks have been retained.

No normalization has been performed on the source text.

End-of-line hyphens have been eliminated, except for words normally containing a hyphen at that point. Where hyphenated words occur at the end of a page, the page break element has been moved to the end of the recombined word.

Abbreviations have not been expanded.
