PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894
PATERSON. The first day in the New Tear was indeed a delightful day, and must have satisfied even the most discontented of holiday-keepers. An excur sion was made by the s.e. Berlinda to Newcastle and back, and a goodly number availed themselves of this happy privilege of a trip to the sea. The b.b. Daisy, from Baymond Terrace, with a crowd o* passengers and a really good brass band on board, reached Paterson about noon, and our town was gay with the promenading groups of strangers. The Eaymond Terrace Cricket Club also arrived by th Daisy, and encountered our first eleven on the Paterson Eeserve, but proved too strong for our men and totally defeated them. Our mail contract between Maitland and Dungog, held for so many years by Mr. H. Fry, is now in the hands of Mesdrs. Chamberlain and Prest, who have commenced their first week of service with punctu ality and civility. A very pleasing recognition of the valuable qualities and courteousness of Mr. Geo. Morton* was made about midday...
