Godwin, William Curran (16  October  1817) Morning Chronicle

Godwin wrote 2 1/2 pages on John Philpot Curran, Irish politician and lawyer, the day after his death, which was published a day later in the Morning Chronicle . It was republished in William Henry Curran's life of his father (1819) and Marken and Pollin eds, Uncollected Writings . Godwin describes his friend as 'almost the last of that brilliant phalanx, the contemporaries and fellow-labourers of Mr. Fox, in the cause of general liberty' and praises his oratory, wit and patriotism.
