We whose Names are hereunder subscribed(?), Linen drapers, met at Rathfryland, Sept. 14, 1763, in order to establish a Market for the Sale of Brown Linen, came to the following Resolutions.
Resolved, That Rathfryland, being an ardent Market Town, always remarkable for good linen Yard (yarn), and in the Neighborhood of which Town large Quantities of linen Cloth are manufactured, is a very fit and proper Place to establish a Linen Market.
Resolved, That in order to make said linen Market permanent ( as the greater Number of us use ??????????? the Dublin Market) have thought fit to aj????? [adjourn]the same to the first Wednesday in January next, on which Day, and all subsequent Markets, we are determined to attend to buy linens as often as our private Affairs will permit, and that Drapers who live at a distance, may have an Opportunity to attend the same, we think it proper that the Linen Market shall not begin till Eleven o'Clock.
