This chapter discusses the result of Theobald Wolfe Tone and the Catholic delegates' trip to London to air their grievances and propose reforms. It explains that the group was not well received by the Duke of Abercorn and Henry Dundas decided to defer formal discussions and reminded them to divest themselves of ‘dangerous associations’. Despite this, Tone remained optimistic that full Catholic emancipation was forthcoming given the gracious reception by the King.
