- DescriptionExcerpt from Lights and Shadows of Irish Life, Vol. 2 of 3 How very, very delightful is a small kind ness, garnished by a little bit of attery. The church upon the opposite hill became absolutely picturesque; and so would have been the vil lage, - but for the pigs; an old lady with thir teen young ones had taken undisputed posses sion of a kish of potatoes under shelter of what was called a cottage door, while its kind mistress, intent upon my t being incommoded by the sun-beams, either did t see, or seeing did t heed their ravages. Ithought of the happy pigs of Mullinavat, who have the clean straw to lie upon, while their lords and masters put up with the dirty.-who eat that Irish luxury, a maley potato, While their mistresses are content with the damp ones, - and who go to bed by candlelight, while the family sit in the dark.
