Major William Shirley in Clonmel, Ireland - 28 September, 1828
from Letter from Major William Shirley to his mother, Phillis Byam Wollastan, 8 October 1828, page 342:
On Sunday week there was an assemblage here of about 2000 people, with about 100 on horseback dressed in green uniforms, with white sashes and epaulettes, and a band of music; they marched in good order through the town, and towards evening dispersed. They had no arms with them; but it is supposed those are hidden on the mountains or in the bogs.
