Black And White

DURING the short time that Lord Byron was in Parliament, a petition,

setting forth the wretched condition of the Irish peasantry, was one

evening presented, and very coldly received by the hereditary

legislative wisdom.--Ah, said Lord Byron, what a misfortune it was

for the Irish that they were not born black! They would then have had

plenty of friends in both houses.
