This collection contains 6 letters to Richard Brinsley Sheridan, a member of the British Parliament, from Isaac Corry and S. Canning, who commented on Irish politics and the debate over a trade bill in mid-August 1785. Corry and Canning discussed political sentiments in Dublin and the Irish countryside, frequently mentioning the actions and politics of Prime Minister William Pitt and the Whig opposition in England. Corry also wrote about his dissatisfaction with reports of debates in the Irish House of Commons (July 20, 1785). In one undated letter, Corry celebrated a recent triumph in the Parliament of Ireland.
