Comprised mainly of correspondence, diaries, autobiography, pamphlets, public
addresses, and miscellaneous memoranda, this collection includes all of the
writings of Theobald Wolfe Tone: barrister, United Irishman, agent of the
Catholic Committee, and officer in the French revolutionary army. This is the
second of three volumes and covers Tone's attempt to settle in America, the
early days in France, his negotiations with the Directory, his entry into the
French army, and the expedition to Bantry Bay.
