The Freeholder & Cork Magazine, 4 November 1839

To the Editors of The Freeholder
I beg to call your attention to that debauched old man, Tom Gardiner, who has a large family, but nevertheless with his friend Joe Ray resorts to Night houses—neglecting his most respectable wife and family.

This old rake has his top Coat in pawn for bilks, & has actually had the effrontery to apply to the Sherriff to know how he is to act, but at the time giving a wrong address.

This conduct of an old man passed [sic] the meridien of life, every one will acknowledge to be disgraceful and I hope that thro' the instrumentality of your excellent Magazine, Tom will mend his ways, and thus prevent a great deal of misery to his respectable family.

I could tell a great deal more about black faces rolling in the gutter &c. &c. but I will now advise him to pay all just demands on him, redeem his WHITE top Coat, spend his evenings and Sundays with his family, or he will hear more from,
                                Your most obedient servant,
