Some aspects of George Allwright's life. On his pardon and repatriation to UK he sent a letter to William Smith O'Brien, Leader of the Young Ireland movement

To William Smith O'Brien, Esq.. Dear Sir, -- On the eve of your departure from this colony, we, the undersigned inhabitants of Hobart Town and its vicinity, beg leave to offer you and your companions, Messrs. Martin and O'Doherty, our sincere congratulations upon your restoration to freedom. It affords us pleasure to testify that your sojourn amongst us has been marked by the same high gentlemanly spirit which had previously distinguished your public career. However many of us differ from you as to the merits of the cause which led to your expatriation, we must all respect the purity and disinterestedness of your motives, and admire the fortitude with which you have borne up against the privations which an ardent devotion to what you deemed the interest of your country, entailed upon you. With the fervent hope that-in the enjoyment of freedom and the society of your family and friends-the recollection of all that has been painful and irksome in your captivity may soon be obliterated from your mind,
We remain, dear Sir,
Very sincerely yours.............5
