Ennis 22nd April 1841

Dear Ray--I have just arrived here, and have enclosed 18/.,
the subscriptions of some of the honest men of Kilrush, they
have taken up the question warmly, and are determined to
support the association in their efforts to obtain for
Ireland the benefits of domestic legislation, and they hail
with delight the movement in favour of a landlord and tenant
bill. The people here are the victims of the most ruthless
tyranny, and the oppression of their hearthless landlords
has become unendurable.

The time has come when this system of extermination must be
arrested by some legislative enactment.

I also send you the names and adresses of several wardens
from different districts.

Signed---Thomas Reynolds.
