August, 1844 - August 1844

About 27 French luggers have been seen off Shandwick. The Frangaich as the Highlanders call them are not lying lazy, these French fishers pay no attention to Parliamentary law and act as they will and by their bribery and brandy and Sabbath carousing and concerting they are affecting our thoughtless youth. Something should be done by our Ministers to stop their encroachments to our rights and our rules of morality.
