Dublin, April 2, 1764.
To the Committee of the FREE-PRESS.
THE CASE of John O'Donnel, lately a Shoemaker, now a poor Cobler, in
Kelly's-Lane, Dorset-street, with a Family of small Children, humbly sheweth,
THAT in the last Week, the said John O'Donnel did duly summons John C_____k
Gentleman, for a Debt of 35 Shillings, contracted in the County of Kerry, (a
small Matter to the Gentleman-Debtor, but a vast Sum to the poor Creditor in his
present reduced Circumstances.)
That the said John O'Donnel did attend at the appointed Time and was called
upon as Plaintiff, but the Defendant was not called upon, neither did he appear.
That the then sitting Magistrate demanded the said Summons and took it from
Plaintiff, and having written something thereon, put it into his Pocket, tho' it
has cost the Plaintiff Six-pence; and finally told the said O'Donnel, That he
must go to the County of Kerry, and there sue for his Debt, where it had been
If this be the Law of the City of Dublin, more especially in their Court of
Conscience, surely People ought to be told so much.
Were it publickly known that, the poorer a Man is, and the more he wants
the Relief of Justice, the more he shall be disabled and disqualified for
obtaining it; it would save many wretched Creditors from being further
destroyed, by fruitless Expectations, Attendance, Loss of Time and Cost of Suit.
For want of the said Sum, fairly and hardly earned from the said wealthy
Gentleman, and which, small as it is, would have made me and my Little-ones
happy, I must now long labour under the Extremity of many Wants; unless You,
Gentlemen, can inform me of some Court of Law, of Conscience, where the Poor may
recover what is justly their Due; or unless you will be pleased, by some
charitable Contribution, to make Amends for this uncharitable Defect in the
Practice of Equity. J. O'Donnel.
