But, strangely enough, no document or writing to tell anything of the fate of the survivors after they started on their last march. That all perished by the way there can be little doubt. But it is altogether probable that before the final catastrophe overtook them they had endeavoured to place somewhere a record of their achievements and their sufferings.

If in a reminiscent mood to change the subject from football to himself, he tells his "ever-on-to-him" admirers some of his achievements in the old days there is immediately evidence of preparedness among the players, as the following salute is given with fists beating on the table in unison "One, two, three! Oh, what a gosh darn lie!"

Igor, the legitimate sovereign, had now attained his majority; but, accustomed as he had long been, to entire obedience, he did not dare to claim the crown from a regent flushed with the brilliancy of his achievements, who had all power in his hands, and who, by a nod, could remove him for ever out of his way.

Two-thirds of each Battalion were sound asleep in pools of mud and water like corpses half buried!

His linen was strictly without blemish, and he wore a creaseless black frock coat and a waistcoat of brown broadcloth.

By his successful usurpation the hereditary principle always a weak one in Ireland was broken down. The one chance of a settled central government was thus at an end. Every petty chief and princeling all over the island felt himself capable of emulating the achievements of Brian. It was one of those cases which success and only success justifies.

Amongst the most noteworthy of Lord John Russell's literary achievements were the two works which he published concerning a statesman whose memory, he declared, ought to be 'consecrated in the heart of every lover of freedom throughout the globe' Charles James Fox, a master of assemblies, and, according to Burke, perhaps the greatest debater whom the world has ever seen.
