THE WEST BRITON, 8 July 1869


The cherry season is now rapidly approaching, and the parishes on the banks of the Tamar - Botusfleming, Calstock, &c., are looking to a good crop of the black cheery, or as it is more familiarly known, "mazzards". One grower alone has advertised for thirty men to gather cherries - "Liberal wages and plenty of good cider to drink." The same grower guarantees to supply fruit dealers with 30 cwt. daily during the season!
