From the holdings of the late Ian Jackson.Francis Dobbs, 1750-1811, was an influential member of the Irish Parliament, barrister, and writer on political and religious themes. Sir Jonah Barrington wrote of him: "His intellect was of an extraordinary nature; he seemed to posses two distinct minds - the one adapted to the duties of his profession; the other, diverging from its natural center led him through wilds and ways rarely frequented by the human understanding - entangled him in a maze of contemplative deduction from revelation to futurity."
