Hardy p 208
Ao 1781. "Except by a few, it can not be said that letters
"were much cultivated at that time in Ireland. Yet, though the
"pursuits of a camp are necessarily incompatible, for the moment,
"with literary studies, the volunteer institution, so far from being

faculty, by which, more than plainly than by any other in faculty not
innate, the more is distinguishable from the brute.
