Franklin

An address to the Irish Roman Catholics, on the necessity of arming the government and constitution with the whole energies of Ireland, at the present crisis. This Address was begun in October last. It was finished, and the greater part of it printed early in December, as a defensive warning against a meditated invasion. The invasion has been since attempted and failed. But the design is not laid aside. The French Directory continue their hostile preparations, and they have publicly declared to their Armies, that they will immediately again attempt it. Their Peace with Austria renders this probable. There can be now no neutrality for Irishmen. If the vessel incur a danger, all who are on board her are equally exposed to suffer. This is the time for Irisic Loyalty. Thirty thousand French Plunderers can make no impression upon 4 or 5,000,000 of Irishmen, if we are but faithful to ourselves [electronic resource].
