      Freeman Journal
      Dublin, Ireland
      Tuesday, May 29, 1764

      To the Committee for conducting the FREE-PRESS:
      Gentlemen, May 22nd, 1764
      I Went last Sunday to Christ Church for the first Time since my Return to
      America, where I have been for many Years; but was greatly surprized to be
      denied Admittance, by an old Fellow who opened the Door, just sufficient to put
      his Head out, and make a Demand of a Piece of Money; which on my not complying
      with, he slapt the Door in my Face with the most insolent Air imaginable. I
      would be glad to make a Query through the Channel of your most useful Paper:
      whether it would not be more beneficial to these sacred BOX-KEEPERS to advertise
      where TICKETS may be bought to save Trouble both to them and to the
      Congregation, as it must be somewhat disagreeable to a Gentleman to remain
      exposed to the Ridicule of the lower Class in the Isle, if he has not Silver to
      gratify the Door-keeper (which was my Case)?
      I have been in several Roman Catholick Countries, in whose Churches, as
      well as several Dissenting Congregations, the greatest Politeness is observed to
      all Strangers coming in; nor have I ever paid for Admittance to a Place
      dedicated to the Worship of the Almighty, or ever heard of such a Thing untill
      my Arrival in Dublin.
      I am Gentlemen,
      Your most obedient Servant,

      MARRIAGES.] A few days ago, at Tuam, Lieut. Hutton of the 69th Regiment of
