Series: The History Collection / Historical Primary Sources

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.
