TranscriptCheltenham 17 Aug. 1829
Dear Sir Hill
I was happy to see that the 12 August went off so quietly in
Derry; I think Lord Fras [Francis?] Gouer's letter to the Mayor a
proper one, and I really do think you are all called upon after the
acknowledged good conduct of the Protestants, to take notice of the
Paragraph in the Chronicle threatening the Protestants with Death if
they dared to appear on that day; for once the good conduct of the
Protestants is appreciated, not attributed to fear, I approve much
of the plan of the Orange Lodge to turn their funds and minds to
Protestant Colonization; much better work than Processions and
Dinners; Emigration of Protestants is of all things the most to be
dreaded, and we shall now see how far the Liberals are sincere when
they tell us their support of late measures was given for the same
purpose as our opposition; the support of Protestant Interests.
