    Excerpt from Calendar of the Manuscripts of the Marquess of Ormonde, K. P, Vol. 2: Preserved at Kilkenny Castle; Presented to Parliament by Command of His Majesty

    The volume from which the letters here printed are taken is a duplicate of the copy known to Carte, apparently taken for the use of the Duke of Ormond, who in 1680 was Lord Lieu tenant, and of whose anxiety, despite the freedom with which he seems to have lent his manuscripts, to make his collection of the Irish State Papers of his own time as complete as possible there is plenty of evidence.

    N 0 episode in Irish history has been more keenly canvassed by partizans of opposite sympathies or prejudices than the Rebellion of 1641. The extent to which the rising was organised and premeditated; the degree in which the accounts of the massacres are entitled to credence; and the question to what extent the spread and violence of the insurrection may have been aggravated by the policy of the Lords Justices, are all of them matters which, even now, too often appear to rouse those who treat of them to passionate declamation. They are therefore topics best avoided in an introduction to an official report. Those who look for a discussion in these pages of the effect of these letters of the Lords Justices on the controversy which they help to illuminate must necessarily be disappointed. And comment on the contents of the letters must be confined to a bare statement of the period they cover and the persons to whom they are addressed.

    The volume, it should be stated, consists exclusively of letters. It includes no proclamations or other acts of the Irish Govern ment. Neither does it include letters sent by that Government to its subordinates in Ireland, such as the Presidents of the provincial administrations of Munster or Connaught, nor to the Commanders of the army or expeditionary forces. It is practically confined to letters in the nature of reports sent by the Lords Justices to those personages in England to whom they were responsible, or whom they had been instructed to keep informed of the progress of events in Ireland. But as such they form a complete official record of the views of the Irish Government for a space of two years and three months, i.s. From the outbreak of the rebellion on October; 21, 1641, to the termination of the government of the Lords Justices by the appointment of Ormond to the Viceroyalty.
