Letter from the Duke of Leinster to the Sheriffs and Commons of the Citry of Dublin


Which being presented to his Grace by the Sheriffs, they received the following answer:

Leinster House, August 20, 1775.

GENTLEMEN: It is with the greatest pleasure that I this day received, by the hands of your worthy Sheriffs, your vote of thanks. Give me leave to assure you, nothing can be more satisfactory than to think my conduct in regard to our distressed brethren in America, should meet with the approbation of so respectable a body as the Commons of the City of Dublin.

I am, Gentlemen, your most obedient, and obliged humble servant,


To the Sheriffs and Commons of the City of Dublin.

Ordered, That the foregoing Resolution, and his Grace' s Answer, when received, be published.

Signed by order:

ALFRED HOWARD, Clerk of the Commons.
