Transcribed from the 29 December 1846 edition of The Armagh Guardian newspaper, by permission of The British Library:
Among the many benevolent acts of Irish landlords we are happy to find the most praiseworthy in connexion with Sir James Stronge, Bart., who, with Lady Stronge, have been unremitting in their exertions to relieve the wants of all either in or around the neighbourhood of Tynan. Besides giving constant employment to a vast number of their tenantry and labourers, they have supplied them with excellent soup daily during the last month, at a halfpenny a quart to such as are able to pay, and gratuitously to the really destitute--under the superintendence of the Rev. Jervis White and Dr. Huston.--The cook and other domestics are engaged at the Abbey in the making of the soup, of which upwards of 40 poor families received a liberal and gratuitous supply on Christmas day. Sir James has also given a handsome subscription to the fund for establishing a Relief Committee in that locality.
