A HUMANE LANDLORD
It is gratifying to have to record acts of humane and benevolent
Landlords and it affords us much satisfaction when we have an opportunity of
doing so, John Digby, Esq. the proprietor of the island of Arran, haws
transmitted a large supply of Blankets to Patrick O'Finherty, Esq. J.P.,
with a request that he would be pleased to distribute them amongst the most
indigent of his tenantry in the Islands. Such a generous and humane act at
the approach of winter is highly creditable in the feelings of this kind and
indulgent Landlord, and must call forth the thanks and gratitude of poor
peasantry, to whose comforts he has administered such welcome relief. This
supply of blanketting was furnished through Mr. Digby's agent, George
Thompson, Esq., who is also a gentleman of very charitable and benevolent
disposition, and in whom the Island of Arran are indebted for many acts of
kindness for the last 39 years.
