  1. 1.

    This is from Thomas Otway’s Venice Preserv’d (1682) and in the play is spoken by Pierre, doomed conspirator against the corrupt Venetian senate, as he dies by the knife rather than poison, and that he can say this is a mark of pride. When Jackson repeats the line, it is similarly a mark of pride. He might have been betrayed but he has not betrayed the cause of the United Irishmen.
