Excerpt from Memoirs and Correspondence of Viscount Castlereagh, Vol. 2: Second Marquess of Londonderry M'Mahon, Member of the Executive Committee, a Presbyterian parson from the Country of Down, forced to emigrate in June last, came over to London, where he met with Quigley, who was likewise obliged to leave Ireland. They stayed together in London, imitating the Patriots in the mode of forming Societies after the plan of United Irish. They had heard of the expedition at the Texel being intended for Ireland, and it was agreed on that an insurrection should be attempted in London, as soon as the landing was affected in Ireland. Colonel Despard was to be the leading person, and the King and Council were to be put the death, &c. Their force was estimated at 40,000, ready to turn out.
