Edmond Burke

Irish Humour Home

On Father O'Leary's arrival in London he was anxiously sought after by
his countrymen residing in that capital, who all felt gratified by
every opportunity which offered itself, of paying respect to one who had
done so much honor to religion and their country. Mr. Edmond Burke was
very marked in the regard which he manifested to O'Leary.--It was, in
fact, impossible, after an evening spent in his society, not to seek at
every future opportunity a renewal of the delight which his wit,
pleasantly, and wisdom afforded.
