He was justly styled the terror of the South, and Lossing says that his conduct during his march of over 1,500 miles through that section was disgraceful to the British name. Whatever they make up their mind to do, they will do; and though these Britons wrangle and quarrel among themselves as to the most appropriate manner to destroy and plunder the Irish, they never during their own differences lose sight of British interests, which is Ireland's destruction, whether through hypocritical kindness and slow poison or by heroic remedies which irritate and madden.

The messenger said verbally that hvo minutes were allowed for the colonel's decision. Furthermore, Voltaire uses Jacques the Anabaptist to explain that men were not born to kill each other— contrary to the beliefs of the kings. Twenty-nine years later, the King was born. – R.

There was one moment of panic in the crowd, when it swung back on the wagonette, but only a moment. Why cannot each nation stay at home in peace and leave at peace its fellow? There is no court of last resort between nations but war. In many respects Smith was one of the most remarkable men who arose with the Revolution, and was as well known for his wit, conviviality, and humorous stories, as he was for his learning and success in practice, his drollery being heightened by an awkwardness of gesture, a ludicrous cast of countenance, and a drawling utterance.

From West Irish Folk-Tales and Romances, collected and translated by William Larminie, pp. 1-9. He was really just the Carlos Mencia of the 70's and 80's.
