These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Eve of All-Hallows, v. 2 of 3 Adelaide of Tyrconnel:Look inside the book: Their route to the ford, which it had been determined they were to pass, lay through an unenclosed country, the grounds of which were partly covered with low brush-wood, over which the horses sprung with delight; and had the soldiers been clad in green a spectator might have imagined he looked down on a hunting party, instead of beholding Pg 3 an army upon the burst of battle; for, startled and roused from their peaceful lair, numerous rabbits and hares were seen to jump forth from beneath underwood, furze, fern, and heath; which soon set the soldiery at fault, and who for the moment gave up (tumultuously dashing into the merry greenwood) the hunting of men for chase of the leporine tribe; and they were not brought back to a sense of duty until thrice the bugle of recall had sounded; when having knocked on the head some hundreds of these peaceful, harmless animals, the troops gave up the chase, which is the symbol, for the dire reality of war. ...James having ungenerously, as unjustly, thrown some reflections on the courage of his Irish troops, observing to some of his general officers, 'that he would never again trust his cause to an Irish army;' with much spirit they replied: 'That throughout the fight their troops had acted no inglorious part, though unanimated by a princely leader; that while William shared danger in common with his army, encouraging them with his presence, by his voice, and by his example, Pg 37yet that King James stood aloof at a secure distance, the quiet spectator of a contest on the result of which depended his crown and realms!'
