"We had a meeting of the Hibernian society
yesterday evening, to take into consideration the
propriety of contributing from our funds to the
relief of the distressed peasantry in the south of
Ireland, when it was unanimously decided to
commence a subscription, as well among ourselves
as the inhabitants generally. It was proposed to
send a cargo of flour, but on the suggestion of
Mr.-------, who you know is an influential
member, I think it will be determined to send the
money to you to purchase meal, potatoes, etc.
to have distributed."
