Our friends… were alarmed, but not out of their good Sense or Benevolence

We have a letter begun today in 1808 from Castle Square, Southampton that is interesting for its description of a fire that broke out in a shop in the town, and its effects on various people.  The letter is left unfinished at that news, to be completed the following day.

7th October 1808
