Item refers to a speech delivered by Thomas Francis Meagher upon being asked why sentence should not be passed upon him, October 23 1848. First lines read: "My lords, it is my intention to say a few words only. I desire that the act of a proceeding, which has occupied so much of the public time, should be of short duration. Nor have I the indelicate wish to close the dreary ceremony of a State-prosecution with a vain display of words".
