Applications for clothing.
There were 23 applications from inmates for clothes for the purpose of leaving the house, the hearing and
consideration of which occupied the Board for nearly two hours. The decisions, all well considered, were varied,
some applications granted, some refused.

Burial of a Pauper.
Mr. Thomas WALSH stated to the Board, that a strolling beggar woman, named Francis, who at times stopped in Taghmon,
died suddenly at Ardenagh, on Sunday last.
No Inquest was held.  He had paid for her burial, for if he had not done so, there seemed no one else disposed to do
it, and the body might have remained there. He wanted to know whose business was to look after such cases.
The Clerk said it was the Churchwardens-and in case where that of a person unknown, the Relieving  Officer.
Mr. WALSH said he did not know who the Churchwardens of Ballymitty were, and he buried her at his own expense-but
it would be well to know the law in such cases.
