Whereas it has been a custom for Gentlemen to give money to 
servants after being entertained at dinner by their masters, 
and as such a custom is contrary to hospitality, and 
generally attended with many mischief's to men servants, We 
the Grand Jury of the County of Corke, being thoroughly 
persuaded that an immediate stop ought to put to such a 
practice, have unanimously resolved to suppress it for the 
future, by neither giving money ourselves, not suffering our 
servants to take it from others. April 1st 1765.
