Just arrived the Schooner Westward, with 110 Tons from Kinvarra in the Galway Bay, the shipment of Joyce and Curtin, in the English and Limerick markets, where the quality of those potatoes are known.
They array from 10s to 15s per ton more than others, and go by the name of “Galway Protestants.” Those requiring them for seed should put down a lesser quantity, as they are of a prolific nature, otherwise the crop will be bad. Parties wishing for a good summer potatoe will find it their interest to supply themselves out of present cargo.
