Picnic. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 February 1885

Picnic.   In a previous issue we noticed the progress of the industry carried on by Messrs. Swinner- ton and Frew, of the Annandale Ironfoundry,   Parramatta-road, Leichhardt. We have now to chronicle the first annual picnic of the em- ployees, which took place at Sandringham, on the 14th instant. After an enjoyable ride, the party arrived safe at the rendezvous, where full justice was done to an ample spread prepared for the party. After luncheon various games and sports were indulged in, such as cricket, quoits, football, &c. A very enjoyable day was wound up in the evening with a ' sociable,' where speeches, songs, and recitations were rendered. During the evening the kindness of the firm in entertaining their employees was eulogised, and the company broke up with 'Auld Land Syne' and ' God Save the Queen.'

The man has just been- ill, pre sumably from overwork ; and . can it be wondered at i Ib not this also a principal ? cause of the late delivery of letters , we are inconvenienced with 1 In tho name of justice and humanity the man should either have a horse or the run be divided.
