Dr Michael O’Gorman
Dr. O’Gorman, whose humanity and benevolence were so nobly exercised to the sick and wounded of our army at Buenos Ayres, is a native of this County. He left his own country young, and settled in Spanish America, where he was promoted to the rank of State physician, the first place in the medical department, and one of high consideration.
A long residence in this sequestered part of the world did not render him unpractised in all the generous qualities of an Irishman—he is in the highest estimation with persons of all ranks in the Spanish part of South America, for his manliness and virtue. When his countrymen wanted the offices of humanity, every man found a friend in Dr. O’Gorman, whose munificence could not be exceeded by any thing but his charity and philanthrophy.
