Friday 21/6/46 McGladdery - Sheeting (68/72) - Friday 21st June
This weaver got a 9x10 67" N8291 Beam into his loom, with which he was not satisfied. I explained that it was all we had at present and would change it the first opportunity. He said to take his notice, I told him Saturday was the day and I would do so. He then came back again and said he would only work a week, that he was going to England, stating he had had work etc. etc. casting up about ? while other ?. I told him if that was so I would let him away when he had his cloth off. The Tenter? on Thursday night before stopping time told me that McGladdery was not going to start the plain? loom, that he was going on the Bureau. As it was better for me to make his position clear I asked him of he was intending to leave when he had his cloth take off, he said yes, I then told him he was leaving of his own accord, that was about 10 or 15 minutes past 8.00 on Friday morning, about an hour & or hour and later I was working at a boom? above his and on going past his loom to Mechanic shop he came out and stopped me and wanted to know if I was going to break? him on the Bureau. I told him there was a form which came out from there to be filled in and if he left voluntary we could not say we had no work, when work was available.  He then lost his temper completely, talking a lot in very excited way about the Green? Road, if he came from there he would be alright, mentioning Johnny Mooney, Mick T??ley, Kathleen McGrath, and, as he said 'other papists they could get everything.' I tried to pacify him but in vain. I told him he was a bad boy and I did not want to have any trouble with him. He then seemed to get worse saying he would fight this to the bitter end. I then told him to do whatever hell? he wished and before I was aware he attacked me several times. He seemed by his attitude from the start to want to do this as he was very aggressive all the time.

My dearest Lettie?, I cannot settle to write letters, am on the trot all the time. We have had a wonderful holiday, not a dull minute. Weather cold for first three or four days but very hot ever since. I'm as brown as a berry. Edie is red as a beetroot. Been the best holiday we have ever had. Will send you an account of our doings? later on. Took some photos and have a good collection of cards. This is the sort of holiday you should take in the summer. Several folks on board are looking quite different after their two weeks ? We start for home on Sunday. This is Friday in Las Palmas. Love from Arthur?

(1)  Lisbon. 2 days - Motor run to Cintra about 17 miles of most gorgeous scenery. Motor run round city visiting all places of interest.
Madeira  1 day - Very warm, motored to see the sights, very pretty place but spoiled by ? of bypass. Would have loved two days here, plenty to see.
(2) Santa Cruz  2 days - Motored to Orotava? about 20 miles, half of it through banana plantations. System of irrigation very novel. Saw them being packed, very interesting. Peak of Tenerife?, 13,000 feet high, can be seen 130 miles at sea. Very hot here. Return there to-morrow for cargo?
(3) Las Palmas  Friday and Sunday - I think the most enjoyable ? we had was to-day, delightfully warm and everywhere something new. Pulled and ate oranges from the trees. Saw the cave dwellers at Atalaja, half savages they are.  Port of Las Palmas very busy, very fine shops or ships?
