Excerpt from Tipperary Free Press 1835
Whereas on the night of Tuesday last, some person maliciously cut, with a saw, the shafts of my Day Car to Dungarvan (which had that day commenced plying between Thurles, Killenaule, Fethard, Clonmel and that town) in the first mentioned place, and quiete close to the stand occupied by Mr. Bianconi’s cars
Now in order to bring to punishment the guilty person, I herby offer a Reward of TEN POUNDS, on his being prosecuted to conviction, within the ensuing TWELVE MONTHS
It may perhaps, be almost unnecessary to mention that I have used every exertion in my power, to accommodate the public, and particularly the persons in the trade, residing in the towns thro’ which my Cars travel that in very rare instances, do I charge for parcel, that in all cases, my fares are extremely moderate. These are facts that can be proved, and which I do respectfully conceive, entitle me to the support of the public.
Hotel Fethard, (Tipperary) July 18, 1835.
