To the editor of the Carlow Sentinal.

6th February 1847

Sir, --Although public attention has not been called , so far as I am aware, to the conduct of Simeon Clarke and Co. I think , nevertheless such conduct towards the poor deserves public gratitude. At the Burrin Mills hundreds of people daily are enabled to purchase flour and meal per stone or pound, at wholesale prices, and the consequence may naturally be favoured - the poor are protected from the hustlers, who retail articles of an adulterated nature at exorbitant prices. This is a noble example , and should be generally followed, although I am aware the practice to respectable millers is inconvenient.

I remain,
your obedient servant,
A Subscriber
