From the “Quarterly Licensing Meeting”. August 1870:
APPLICATION FOR NEW LICENCE.
Mr M. A. Cleary applied for a licence for a new house at the corner of Brisbane and Charles-streets, to be known as the Cornwall Hotel. The Chairman produced some very high testimonials in favor of the applicant, and he submitted these for the inspection of the justices. Mr Fawns said the house was very suitable, had great accommodation, was well fitted up, and expensively furnished. The Mayor said he had visited the premises, and found them very well fitted up, and suitable for a family hotel. They were well furnished, and had every requisite accommodation for families visiting the town. Mr Mason also said this house was suitable, and was required, as Mrs Morrison frequently found it impossible to give the requisite accommodation applied for at the Launceston Hotel. The application for the licence was approved, unanimously.
Cornwall Chronicle, 6 August 1870
The International Hotel. — This hotel, the largest and most complete in the colony, has been taken by Mr M. A. Cleary, of the Cornwall Hotel. The Cornwall is, we understand to be disestablished, and converted into a chemist’s and druggist’s shop. Mr Cleary has succeeded in attracting a good hotel business to quite a new house, the Cornwall, and he is therefore the more likely to succeed in conducting the larger adjoining establishment, the International Hotel.
Cornwall Chronicle, 4 April 1873
“THE INTERNATIONAL.” We understand it is probable that Mr M.A. Cleary will take this admirable hotel in succession to Mr Coker. Should this arrangement be carried out, the Cornwall Hotel, in conducting which Mr Cleary has became favorably known, will once more revert to its original character, that of on ordinary shop.
