THOUGHT: Helping people takes time, and free time is a commodity most of us have in scant supply. It is probably, at least partly true, for that reason that the time we give to others is such a treasure to God.

PAPERS: Killarney Echo and South Kerry Chronicle 1899-1920, Saturday, November 29, 1902; Page: 2
Moyvane House, Newtownsandes,

25th November, 1902. DEAR. SIR,—On the day after seeing Canon O’Leary’s letter on the above—Thursday last—I wrote him explaining my presence at the Dingle Sessions, and asking him to set the matter right on my behalf with respect to the licensing taxes. He invites me to make my explanation through the Press. The facts of which I have made Canon O’Leary aware are these: I  had promised a clergyman in the district for some time past to spend a few days with him. I went out to his place on Thursday evening, and went into Dingle on Friday to see a gentleman on business. I took a seat on the Bench as I was entitled to do and to vote if I choose to do so. When the magistrates retired to their room I went with them with a view of getting the benefit of their deliberations in some cases where special legal points had arisen, but I at once intimated I did not come to the Sessions to vote, and I would not vote, as can be proved by the records of the court, I did not vote. I hope this letter will get the same publicity that Canon O’Leary’s letter has got.—Yours faithfully,
