Sole edition of a poem ‘on an expulsion from the Whig Club’ (ESTC) in Dublin, and dedicated to the Irish patriot politician, Henry Grattan. ‘No puny policy our souls inspire; / The flame we nourish springs from patriot fire; / From legal liberty we caught the light, / And join’d we’ll guard it from the horrid night / Of black rebellion—free from thy pollution / We’ll shield the spirit of the Revolution, / Our virtuous parent! and the sons shall be / In all things, Tycho, the reverse of thee!’ Not in O’Donoghue. ESTC locates only 3 copies in the US (American Philosophical Society, Harvard, Huntington).
