Dublin, April 2, 1764.
To the Committee of the FREE-PRESS.
THE CASE of John O'Donnel, lately a Shoemaker, now a poor Cobler, in
Kelly's-Lane, Dorset-street, with a Family of small Children, humbly sheweth,
THAT in the last Week, the said John O'Donnel did duly
summons John C_____k Gentleman, for a Debt of 35 Shillings, contracted in the
County of Kerry, (a small Matter to the Gentleman-Debtor, but a vast Sum to the
poor Creditor in his present reduced Circumstances.)
That the said John O'Donnel did attend at the appointed
Time and was called upon as Plaintiff, but the Defendant was not called upon,
neither did he appear. That the then sitting Magistrate demanded the said
Summons and took it from Plaintiff, and having written something thereon, put it
into his Pocket, tho' it has cost the Plaintiff Six-pence; and finally told the
said O'Donnel, That he must go to the County of Kerry, and there sue for his
Debt, where it had been contracted.
If this be the Law of the City of Dublin, more
especially in their Court of Conscience, surely People ought to be told so much.
Were it publickly known that, the poorer a Man is, and
the more he wants the Relief of Justice, the more he shall be disabled and
disqualified for obtaining it; it would save many wretched Creditors from being
further destroyed, by fruitless Expectations, Attendance, Loss of Time and Cost
For want of the said Sum, fairly and hardly earned from the
said wealthy Gentleman, and which, small as it is, would have made me and my
Little-ones happy, I must now long labour under the Extremity of many Wants;
unless You, Gentlemen, can inform me of some Court of Law, of Conscience, where
the Poor may recover what is justly their Due; or unless you will be pleased, by
some charitable Contribution, to make Amends for this uncharitable Defect in the
Practice of Equity. J. O'Donnel.
