d her in its iron grasp. Does an Irishman, therefore, ask what his duty is in this contest? Let him learn it in the history of his own country, in the story of that green flag; let him, contemplating the sorrows of his mother Erin, remember the days of old, Ere her faithless sons betrayed her.

Whatever may be the re
Doc. 181. Gov. Taylor's proclamation, at Hatteras, N. C., Nov. 20, 1861.
