Captain O'Brien has, with the true instructs of a soldier, selected the very best position for the forthcoming attack. The British rushed forward and poured in a close volley on the South Carolina men. This sort of reflexively dismissive negative review is arguably even more useless as criticism than the cheerleading panegyric. In- deed, two years after its angry rejection by the National Convention he said to me that the country should have accepted the Councils Bill, with the control it gave of education and the possibility it offered of checking up on the financial relations between Great Britain and Ireland.
