Subject: FERMANAGH-GOLD Lisnaskea tenantry 1851.
The Courier (Hobart, Tas.) : 29/1/1851 p.3
An Extraordinary Irish Landlord.
The Earl of Erne, at the exhibition of green crops at Lisnaskea, Fermanagh
last week, delivered an address to his tenantry, on the result of a personal
inspection of the farms on his estate.
" I feel proud and happy (said the noble Lord) to have it in my power
to tell you that I found all the tenants whom I visited, comfortable
and improving in their system of farming and as far as I could judge,
better in their circumstances.
No running away, not one acre of untenanted land, and no discontent
but all vying with each other as to who will produce the best crops."
