    Excerpt from A Second Letter to a British Member of Parliament, Relative to the Oppressions and Cruelties of Irish Revenue Officers: Wherein the Observations on a Former Letter Are Considered and Refuted

    I am very much surprised at the author of these observations, for asserting that the greater number and most atrocious of the outrages detailed by me, were committed long before the existence of the statute to which I attribute them, as all the outrages which I have recounted took place since the year 1807, and fines were imposed on parishes for illicit distillation, by an act which passed in that year, and which is referred to, and included in the statute which I quoted.

    Mr. Coffey is also wrong in asserting, that I impute the origin of illicit distillation to a sudden change in the distillery laws, as no such allegation exists in my first letter to you; but I repeat that the number of private distilleries increased enormously on the adoption of the system of monopoly in distillation, and have been ever since the greatest bane to the financial and moral prosperity of Ireland. But Mr. Coffey also accuses me of ignorance, in asserting that small stills were suddenly prohibited from working, when I ought to Have said that their erection was prohibited.
