- From Pat Purcell Papers:
A 1780 Election Notice. Lady Butler of Ballintemple in the
County of Carlow, being informed that several of the friends of her
family have lately been solicited for their Votes and Interests, as if a
General Election was shortly expected, humbly takes the liberty of
requesting all those who have formerly honoured the BUTLER FAMILY with
their protection and support, to hold themselves disengaged until they
can be properly consulted with respect to such an event.
Ballintemple, Nov. 10th 1780.
