Excerpt from Ireland Under Coercion, 1888: The Diary of an American
Although barely a month has elapsed since the publi cation of this work, events of more or less general notoriety have so far confirmed the views taken in them of the actual state and outlook of affairs in Ireland, that I gladly comply with the request of my publisher for a Preface to this Second Edition.
Upon one most important point - the progressive de moralisation of the Irish people by the methods of the so-called political combinations, which are doing the work of the Agrarian and anti-social Revolution in Ireland, some passages, from a remarkable sermon delivered in August in the Cathedral of Waterford by the Catholic bishop of that diocese, will be found to echo almost to the letter the statement given to me in June by a strong Protestant Home Ruler, that the Nationalists are strip ping Irishmen as bare of moral sense as the bushmen of South Africa.
