Mr. John STAFFORD, Grocer, South Main-Street, stated that he had received a letter from the husband 
of Eliza CASEY, now with her children inmates in the workhouse, and chargeable on Wexford. The 
letter contained 20 to pay the passage of the mother and her 4 children to New Orleans, and 
expressed the hope that the Guardians would aid in giving an outfit.
Mr. CROSBIE bought the letter before the Board, the Clerk had read it, and it would, of course, be 
produced if required.
Eliza CASEY, a mild respectable looking young woman, was called before the board, she stated her 
husband was only a labourer, but had always promised in his letters to send for her as soon as ever 
he was able, and she would be most grateful to the Board for any aid they would give her. The Board 
ascertaining her character in the house had always been correct and proper, and also approving of 
the act of her husband, ordered a sum, not exceeding 15, including 2 to be handed to her on 
landing-her husband living up the country-to procure a suitable outfit for her and her children-the 
Master to provide same under the inspection of Mr. CROSBIE, and the clerk to request the sanction of 
the Commissioners for same.
