The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 18/Letter from Jonathan Swift to the Society of the Governor and Assistants for the new Plantation in Ulster
April 19, 1739.
I HEARTILY recommend to your very worshipful society, the reverend Mr. William Dunkin, for the living of Colrane, vacant by the death of Dr. Squire. Mr. Dunkin is a gentleman of great learning and wit, true religion, and excellent morals. It is only for these qualifications that I recommend him to your patronage; and I am confident that you will never repent the choice of such a man, who will be ready at any time to obey your commands. You have my best wishes, and all my endeavours for your prosperity: and I shall, during my life, continue to be, with the truest respect and highest esteem,
Your most obedient and
most humble servant,
