The author writes “In these ‘Sketches’ I have aimed at a higher object than mere amusement, – desiring so to picture the Irish character, as to make it more justly appreciated, more rightly estimated, and more respected in England. . . . It has been my steady purpose, and zealous wish, to do justice to the many estimable qualities of the Irish peasantry.”
