The Bandon Weavers.   Copy of a letter to the Editor of the Manchester Times

Sir, I have been instructed by the Committee appointed for the Relief of the Poor of the Town of Bandon, to request that you will make it known, through the medium of your Paper, in contradiction to a statement which appeared in a Manchester Print, that no persuasion or influence was used, in order to induce the people alluded to to leave their homes for the purpose of obtaining work in Manchester.  The truth is, that the people in question solicited earnestly for relief in money from the Committee to pay their passage over, it being understood from the representations in the Public Papers that there was a considerable improvement in the cotton trade.  I am, Sir, your obedient servant, John Wheeler, junior, Secretary Relief Committee, 6th May, 1830
