GENERAL RICHARD FITZPATRICK (1747-1813), a brother of the last Earl of Upper Ossory, who was long in parliament, and held successively the offices of Secretary-at-war and Irish Secretary. Fitzpatrick was the intimate friend of Charles James Fox — a fact recorded on his tomb — and his quatrain on that eminent statesman may be quoted as remarkable for condensed and happy expression:
A patriot's even course he steered,
'Mid faction's wildest storms unmoved;
By all who marked his mind revered,
By all who knew his heart beloved.
