BREWSTER LICENSING SESSIONS
In September 1870, Thomas Byrnes was objected to
for selling beer during prohibited hours. Police Detective
Dawson said that he had frequently seen the applicant's 
wife cross over the street to a house in which were a number
of men. It was supposed that drink was carried over there, 
and that it was being consumed there.

Mr. Watson, who appeared for the applicant, said, "There
is no act which prohibits a landlord from going out of his
house on a Sunday," a remark that caused much laughter.
The Police Officer replied, "I am not aware of any," causing
even more laughter.
