Letter from John Baron Bowes of Clonlyon to George Bubb Dodington
1735 Apr. 21.
|Main Creator:||Bowes, John Bowes, Baron, 1690-1767|
Asking recipient's support against a Bill in British Commons for securing the titles of Protestants in Ireland. "I need not inform you how much the Protestant interest here depends upon the Acts made th 2d & 8th of the late Queen to prevent the growth of Popery ... But if this Bill should pass into a law, those Acts would be greatly weakened, ... I would also submit to your consideration whether a British Parliament in point of policy should trouble themselves to make general laws to affect the property of the subjects of Ireland, in cases where neither the commerce nor interest of England can be in any shape concerned. ..."
