An English Catholic bishop argues for Catholic relief. Milner (1752-1826) also offers arguments for toleration of the Catholicism of the Irish soldiers in the Army: "Would it not be madness, in particular, to keep that high spirited and gallant people, who already fight half the battles of the empire by sea and land, in a state of irritation and conscious degradation, merely because they adhere to the religion of their and our ancestors?" For more on Milner's activities, see the DNB. Goldsmiths-Kress 19157.
