Buoigh Karcht Eg Derieu, Justice at Last Triumphs, or Drowning the Shamrock

Excerpt from Buoigh Karcht Eg Derieu, Justice at Last Triumphs, or Drowning the Shamrock: An Irish Drama in Three Acts Capt I have heard that the Colonel has been entrapped by one of the fairest little maids in the County, but I have not yet had a sight of the beauty. Col But gentlemen - Maj There is no use of denying it, but why not let Larry have a fair chance too? There will be nothing gained by oppressing him; so do take my advice, and I am sure you will not regret it. Col [With a slight show of haughtiness] You are mistaken about him being punished for that cause; if he is treated worse than the other men, you may be sure he deserves it. [More friendly.] But come gentlemen, we will resume our game. [To Downy] Here Manus, another bottle. [Manus opens a closet near the desk, takes out a bottle, brings it to the Col., removes the other, and returns to where he was standing. Maj Excuse me, Colonel. I will not play this game, but don't let that interfere with the rest of you. [Pushes his chair back, rises and stands behind the table near the Capt. Capt [To the Col.] I will also withdraw, and let Marvin and you have a contest. [Rises and stands near the Major, looking on. Col Come then, Lieutenant. Now what shall the stakes be? Lt I will make it 300: as I would like to regain what I lost yesterday and to-day. [Rises from his seat.] But Colonel, I will have to give you an order on my pay, if you win. Will that answer? [Pours from the bottle a glass of liquor, and at the end of his speech drinks it. Col Oh, certainly! [Lieut, goes to the desk, writes the order, comes back and lays it on the table, and takes a seat opposite the Col. The latter opens his purse and lays the money on the table. They play, and the Col. wins. Lt. takes another glass of liquor. Lt [Excitedly] Curse the luck, I've lost again. I've nothing now but my commission, and I will put it up against 700 - and I may yet retrieve my losses. [Goes to the desk and writes. Maj} No! no! Marvin, don't do that. Capt} You have lost enough to-day Tom, without that. [In a quick, excited tone, together. Lt [Takes no notice of them, but comes to the table with the written paper in his hand, takes his seat and reads aloud as follows: Four months from date, I promise to pay to Col. Terrence O'Donohue, 700, or surrender to him my commission as Lieutenant of the 62d Light Infantry. - Thos. Marvin.
