OF THE

“ IRISH REBELLION”

OF 1798.

BY

CHARLES HAMILTON TEELING.

« REBELLION! foul dishonouring word,

Whose wrongful blight so oft has stained
The holiest cause that tongue or sword

Of mortal ever lost or gained-
How many a spirit born to bless,

Has sunk beneath that withering name,
Whom but a day's an hour's success,

Had wafted to eternal fame."

TO MY WIFE AND MY CHILDREN,

AT WHOSE REQUEST SOLELY IT HAS BEEN UNDERTAKEN,

I DEDICATE THIS NARRATIVE.

RESPECTED AND BELOVED, THEY ARE ENTITLED TO

THIS MARK OF MY REMEMBRANCE,

THE ONLY INHERITANCE

WHICH THE ENEMIES OF MY COUNTRY HAVE LEFT

ME TO BEQUEATH.
