1803 (17 October) Carlow affidavit of evidence relating to secret society oath "of a seditious nature"
single page manuscript
37 by 22cm., 14.5 by 8.5in.

An extremely interesting affidavit relating to Patrick Byrne of Tullow, County Carlow, accused of taking an oath of a "treasonable or seditious" nature. After being taken into custody those administering the oath attempted to claim that "they were making a Freemason of Patrick Byrne". Though that appears, almost certainly, not to be the case.
