Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 9, page 172 [newspaper clipping], July 31, 1858

Description: Newspaper clipping describing a fire in London at the premises of Mr. Saunders, carver and gilder.

Transcription:

On Tuesday a fire broke out on the premises of Mr Saunders, carver and gilder, in Foley street. Mr Saunders, jun., who was sleeping on the third floor back, managed to escape, much cut and bruised, on to the roof. When the flames were sufficiently subdued to enable the house to be entered, Mrs Saunders was found lying on the front floor third pair, suffocated and lifeless. Mr Saunders was found in the third floor back, nearly suffocated, and is now at St Thomas’s Hospital in a precarious state.
