Person Notes:
— "Saunders's News-Letter" 16 Aug 1811, page 3:
Mr. Pringle, son of Captain Pringle, of Caledon in the County of Tyrone, and nephew to the late General Pringle, went to witness Mr. Mathew's performance on Monday, at the Theatre Royal, which he beheld with delight. --- But a few weeks since, this young gentleman, now about 13 years of age, and his two sisters were entirely strangers to the blessings of sight; all of them having been born blind, but they are now so far recovered, that they have already learnt their letters. They were operated on by Mr. Adams, the celebrated oculist, Exeter, who we most anxiously wish will be again induced to visit this country, where, by his unrivalled skill, and his humanity to the poor, he has done so much good. Indeed, we hope, some public mark of respect will be shown to him, previous to his return, to induce him to do so. We have been informed that Capt. Pringle's family is nearly connected to our celebrated countryman Dr. Babington, Professor of Chemistry at Guy's hospital in London.
