- To The Editor of The Carlow Sentinel.
- February 5th 1847.
Sir - Although public attention has not been called, so far as I am
aware, to the conduct of Simeon Clarke and Co., I think, nevertheless,
such conduct towards the poor deserves public gratitude.
At the Burrin Mills hundreds of people daily are enabled to purchase
flour and meal per stone or pound, at wholesale prices, and the
consequence may naturally be -?- the poor are protected from the "huslers"
who retail articles of an adulterated nature at -?- prices. This is a
noble example, and should be generally followed, although I am aware the
practice, to respectable millers, is inconvenient.
I remain, your obedient servant,
