And when on a fourth night the angel held the crystal book to him, he took it in his hand and opened it; he read the sentence that was therein. Had this wretch made his appearance, even with a large guard, he would have been attacked, and possibly in slaying him an emeute of a sanguinary nature might have ensued.

The Onion - A farcical newspaper featuring world, national and community satire news. It is sad to think that the necessity of preserving secrecy to more effectually deceive the foe should have been so effectively used since to aid the British in maligning, blackening, and misrepresenting the brave men who responded to the Parnellite government's call for volunteers, and some of whom gave up their lives in the service of their country.
