      Boston News-Letter
      Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts

      Monday, April 17 to Monday, April 24, 1704

      Dublin, Nov. 27. A Speech was made by a Member of Parliament setting forth
      the great Danger the Protestants were in, in some parts of Ireland, particularly
      the County of Limerick, where the Irish were beginning to form themselves into
      Bodies, and to plunder the Protestants of their Arms and Money. And that the
      disaffected here held a Correspondence with those in England, and were not of
      out of hopes of restoring the pretended Prince of Wales.
      There's no doubt but there is a Design among the Papists to do mischief, and
      it may be justly said they have begun already; for Letters yesterday say that a
      Body of Papists had got together in the County of Limerick, had marched in a
      hostile manner through several Towns, particularly Askeiting [probably
      Askeaton], and had Plunder'd and disarm'd several Protestants, and killed one
      Green, a Protestant, for appearing as a Witness in the first Court of Claims
      against one Tady O Quin, an Irish Papist. It's said there are several more
      little Parties of Irish up in that Country, which put the Protestants in a
      mighty Consternation.
