He tells me that it took fire first upon the end of a board that was laid upon the roof instead of lead, the lead being broke off, and thence down lower and lower: but that the burning of the goods under St. Fayth’s arose from the goods taking fire in the church-yard.


He says that one warehouse of books was saved under Paul’s; and that there were several dogs found burned among the goods in the church-yard, and but one man that said he would go and save a blanket which he had in the church and, being a weak old man, the fire overcome him.
