The Humble Petition of Patt Lumane
"THAT he has neither house nor home, nor place to shelter him; no person would admit him or give him a nights lodging. He has five in family, exposed to all sorts of persecution, therefore he applies to the Board of Guardians to admit him and family into the workhouse, to shelter them.
"He was upon out-door relief and had no asylum to eat it."
