James Pinion, General manager
Dear Sir, My Directors at their meeting on the 29th inst. desired me to write you relative to the conduct of yourself and 3 other gentlemen on the 12th July, when you stood on the rails at Carnalea Station, and stopped the 8.30 PM up passenger train to the imminent risk of yourselves as well as to the passengers in the train, who numbered close on One Thousand.  My Directors express very great surprise at such an occurrence, and have instructed me to demand an apology for such an unwarrantable proceeding.
Yours faithfully, James Pinion

Lines on a Scrap Album (Written for the Belfast Weekly News)
What associations cluster, Round thy pages album mine, Shining with united lustre - Love and friendship here entwine.
Time or distance cannot sever, These bright links in mem'ry's chain; Voices, faces, gone forever, Wake the buried past again.
All the scraps which here I treasure, Story, portrait, prose, or rhyme, Are a source of endless pleasure, Changing not with chance or time.
For they bring up scenes long vanished, To my saddened gaze once more, And like dreams, by daylight banished, Come the faces loved of yore.
From this book a pleasant vision, Rises - of a fire-lit room, Youthful studies - dreams Elysian, Shadows seen amid the gloom.
So these scraps are dearly cherished, Tokens of the days that were; Souvenirs of hopes long perished, Friendships deep, and true, and rare.
Never broken or supplanted- Into life anew they start- Phantom shadows from the haunted, Deep recesses of my heart.
Thus, amid my album's pages, Busy fancy doth combine; Brightest gems from poets, sages, With memories of "auld lang syne."

Isabel Sinton (nee Pringle)
Derramore House, Bessbrook - Where your grandmother was born in and married from.
William Rodman & Co., Limited., 12 Arthur Street, Belfast
4th January 1990 - Dr. J. A. Sinton, 42 Stranmillis Road, Belfast
My Grandmother, Isabel Sinton (nee Pringle) was born c.1861 as my father, her eldest child was born in April 1891. Her father was Henry Pringle, who married twice, Isabel being the only child, I believe of this first marriage. I do not know the name of his second wife, but I do know that (?) her eldest daughter was Sophia (S? who was to marry James Mackie - founder of the Albert Foundry, Springfield Road, Belfast.  My father, Victor Walter Sinton became a director in the Foundry, and I believe was very highly respected and liked by management and staff.  Unfortunately he died aged 37 years, 28th April (or 29th) 1918 of the "Spanish Influenza"  Mt grandfather was Walker Ly?? Sinton, whose family has connected with the Linen? industry.  He was from what I heard, an old impractical man with outlandish? ideas on life and ? Religion. He died in America long after my grandmother left him and came home but not until he had 7 children. Victor Walter, Norah, John Alexander, Ivy, Olive, Maida? and Isa. Only Maida of the girls married - to a Col. Robert Vi??? R.A.M.C., but both men married, Father to Mary Lindsay (my mother) and Jack (after wh? I ? ?) to a Miss Eia? Stuart? Martin, an English woman.
Ulster Journal of Archaeology, Third S?nis, Vol 1. Part 2. July 1935/85?
"If tradition is correct, history was made at Derrymore House in Co. Armagh, for it was there that the Act of Union between Great Britain & Ireland was drawn up in 1799, as the Rt. Hon. Isaac Corry, Chancellor of the Irish Exchequer? & ? ? owns, worked in close collaboration with Lord Castlereagh, who subsequently visited there during that eventful period of the Derrymore ? Sir Chas. ? ? - This demesne, the seat of the Rt. Hon. Isaac Corry, has great natural capabilities in respect to beauty ..... the approaches are well planned and the Cottage is the most elegant summer lodge I have ever seen." The Cottage, so called, seems to be the present Derrymore House, whose plan shows such a unity of designs. It is a one-storied house with a basement ? round an oblong courtyard .... to the left of the entrance hall a door opens into a corridor which extends eighty feet ... along which are three rooms - one the dining room.  To the right of the entrance hall there is a corresponding corridor, off which the bedrooms probably were.  The courtyard is enclosed on fourth side by the drawing room, which is 32 feet long, & which is connected with the east of the house by two circular halls or anti-rooms at the end of the two long main corridors .... The oval ceiling of the drawing room has the typical 'Adams' egg moulding, and in the wall above the fireplace there are two curious round depressions, or holes, which ? suggested were introduced for acoustic purposes. The mantelpiece was of carved white marble and of exceptional beauty!"
