A Worthy Example

Colonel Beresford, of Woodhouse, Stradbally, has during the last week, sent for four families who went recently to the poorhouse at Kilmacthomas, and employed them to ‘hew wood’ from his estate, to be given gratis to them and their fellow sufferers. The Gallant Colonel has also been giving food of all description to the poor in his vicinity, without distinction of any sect.

It is to be hoped the good example thus given will be followed up by other landlords, as it will not only relieve ‘the poor and needy’, but save our poorhouses from paupers and our jails from culprits.
