The Right Honourable the Earl of Leitrim, always anxious to forward the objects of the Society, has been kindly pleased to communicate some original papers written by Mr. O'Flaherty, which will be found printed in the Appendix. From one of these is given a facsimile of a letter (see p. 431), which may prove serviceable in identifying any of his writings that may hereafter be discovered. The " Ogygia Christiana," said to remain in manuscript among his relations in Connaught, was considered by the venerable Charles O'Conor as the most valuable of our author's works.
