To Theophilus Taylor and John Martin, Esqrs, Churchwardens 
of the Parish of St. Bridget.

We, the undersigned, request you will at your earliest 
convenience convene a meeting of the inhabitants of St. 
Bridget's Parish, to take into consideration the propriety 
of aiding, by all legal and constitutional means, our 
illustrious Representative Daniel O'Connell, Esq. in the 
mighty effort he is now making for the regeneration of our 
beloved, but long oppressed and impoverished Country, by 
restoring to her her Domestic Legislature, the only measure 
which can again place her in the proud position of being 
happy, contended and prosperous.
