Letter from James Brennan, Bailiff, to C. H. Tuckey, Resident Magistrate. 6th August 1850.

I am about to sell Cattle taken for Rent due at Carlow Pound under the Warrant of Thomas Malcomson Esq. appointed by the Court of Chancery ~ the sale is to take place this day and I believe that unless I am protected by Constabulary my life will be in Danger, a dangerous Mob being now collected there from the Queen's County, Kildare and Carlow.

(signed) James Brennan.
