Excerpt from The Boyne Water: By the Ohara Family; A New Edition, With Introduction and Notes

Early in May, 1825, I received a letter from my brother, portions of which I here extract.

I will come out (our title-page still continued) with a tale, in three vols., next Christmas, and I propose that, if possible, you must be the next o'hara. Your guess about Derry is right; and what you recommend is my own plan, long since chalked out. I will visit every necessary spot in the north and south Derry, Lough Neagh, from that, down to the Boyne and then, Limerick, once more. I conceive that I possess, after laborious study, good workable materials for a historic tale. Derry, alone, supplies me with good scenes and studies - I mean in appeal to the human heart and the name of my tale shall be The Boyne Water. This is Thursday. I leave for Ireland next Tuesday mor ning, purpose to be in Dublin (taking my time through Wales) to-morrow week, and shall, when there, expect a long letter from you, addressed to Tom Mulvaney's care. Then, not waiting to get to the North, I will write to father; and, about ten days after, look out for me in Kilkenny. Do you think we can wend to Limerick together?
