BOARD AND LODGING
BOARD and LODGING can be had of Mrs. O'Shaughnessy, Cross-street. Terms
will be found Moderate.
Galway, Dec. 20, 1824.
In acknowledging the Subscriptions received for the last month, the
Committee of the Mendicity Association cannot but advert with peculiar
satisfaction to that of the Weavers working for the Halls of this Town, but
they beg to assure their generous supporters, who have thus out of their
poverty, "cast in their mile," as well as to the Inhabitants of the Town in
general, that their liberal subscriptions must be given in vain; and
notwithstanding all the exertions of the Committee, the Lazy, Idle and
dissolute imposter will be seen begging through the streets until they
resolve sternly to refuse all relief in the streets or at their doors. As
the Committee please themselves to relieve every care of genuine distress,
it must be apparent that of the Mendicants they now meet, ninety-nine in a
hundred are imposters; and they appeal to the good sense of their fellow
townsmen, whether it be not real charity to refuse them.
