By the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor of the City of Dublin.

     WHEREAS great Numbers of idle Vagabonds and vagrant Beggars, of both Sexes, with a Number of clamorcus Children, are observed to strole about the Streets, and this City is become the common Receptacle of Objects, disfigured and frightful, as well as pretending to be miserable, from all Parts of the Kingdom. And whereas, upon Application to the Governors of the Work-house of this City, they have granted out of their Fund a Supply, for maintaining and employing in Bridewel such Beggars as shall be apprehended and sent thither by my Order, which is now fitted up for their Reception; and all Children of such Beggars will be received into the Work-house, in order to be bred up Protestants, and to Industry. In order to carry the said Scheme effectually into Execution, I do hereby require and command all Constables of this City, Beadles and Constables of the several Parishes of this City, from and after the 10th of November next, to seize upon and take up all Beggars of both Sexes and of all Ages, who shall be found begging and asking Alms in any Part of this City without Badges; and all Shoe-boys and idle vagrant Persons, who shall not betake themselves to Labour, and have no visible Way of getting a Livelihood, and bring them before me, so as they may be committed to Bridewel, and be kept to hard Labour; and I hereby command all such Beggars, &c. to depart from this City before the said Day, for if any be found begging after, they shall be punished with the utmost Rigour of the Law. And as such Beggars are injurious to the Inhabitants of this City, and as the Law has directed and enabled every Housekeeper and Inhabitant of this City, to command the Beadle and Constable of his Parish, under the Penalty of Twenty Shillings, to seize and take up such Beggars. I require that every Housekeeper and Inhabitant, but more particularly the Church Wardens, Sidesmen, and Directors of the Watch, in the several Parishes of this City, will give their Assistance to the Execution of this good Design, and return to me the Names of such Beadle or Constable as shall refuse to obey their Commands in Execution of the same, that I may punish them accordingly.
     Given at the Tholsel Chamber, the 20th Day of October, 1764.

                                                           BENJAMIN GEALE.
