Meeting Of O'leary And Wesley

Irish Humour Home




In a short time after this controversy had concluded, the parties met
at the house of a mutual friend. Their different publications were
mentioned; but kindness and sincere good feeling towards each other
softened down the asperities of sectarian repulsiveness; and after an
evening spent in a manner highly entertaining and agreeable, they
parted, each expressing his esteem for the other, and both giving the
example, that public difference on a religious or political subject is
quite consistent with the exercise of the duties of personal kindness
and esteem. Wesley is said, in this instance, to have relaxed into a
most agreeable companion; and O'Leary, by his wit, archness, and
information, was an inexhaustible source of delight, entertainment, and
instruction.
