Today Rita is happy because she is pretty sure we are near the end of the War. I am feeling good too, because Dachau is liberated. My mother has been scared the whole time.
Oh the miserable and calamitous spectacle! Commentary September 2, It was a small mistake, but with great consequences. He thought the fire was out, but apparently the smouldering embers ignited some nearby firewood and by one o'clock in the morning, three hours after Farrinor went to bed, his house in Pudding Lane was in flames.
Farrinor, along with his wife and daughter, and one servant, escaped from the burning building through an upstairs windowbut the baker's maid was not so fortunate, becoming the Great Fire's first victim. Did these cakes set fire to London?
Or see Sir R Vinor's explanation to Pepys. The London of was a city of half-timbered, pitch-covered medieval buildings and sheds that ignited at the touch of a spark--and a strong wind on that September morning ensured that sparks flew everywhere.
From the Inn, the fire spread into Thames Street, where riverfront warehouses were bursting with oil, tallow, and other combustible goods. By now the fire had grown too fierce to combat with the crude firefighting methods of the day, which consisted of little more than bucket brigades armed with wooden pails of water.
The usual solution during a fire of such size was to demolish every building in the path of the flames in order to deprive the fire of fuel, but the city's mayor hesitated, fearing the high cost of rebuilding. Meanwhile, the fire spread out of control, doing far more damage than anyone could possibly have managed.
Soon the flames were visible from Seething Lane, near the Tower of London, where Samuel Pepys first noted them without concern: Pepys Diary Entry, September 2 Some of our maids writing a diary entry ks3 history up late last night to get things ready against our feast today, Jane called up about three in the morning, to tell us of a great fire they saw in the City.
So I rose, and slipped on my night-gown and went to her window, and thought it to be on the back side of Mark Lane at the farthest; but, being unused to such fires as followed, I thought it far enough off, and so went to bed again, and to sleep.
By and by Jane comes and tells me that she hears that above houses have been burned down tonight by the fire we saw, and that it is now burning down all Fish Street, by London Bridge. So I made myself ready presently, and walked to the Tower; and there got up upon one of the high places.
So down [I went], with my heart full of trouble, to the Lieutenant of the Tower, who tells me that it began this morning in the King's baker's house in Pudding Lane, and that it hath burned St. Magnus's Church and most part of Fish Street already.
So I rode down to the waterside. Everybody endeavouring to remove their goods, and flinging into the river or bringing them into lighters that lay off; poor people staying in their houses as long as till the very fire touched them, and then running into boats, or clambering from one pair of stairs by the waterside to another.
And among other things, the poor pigeons, I perceive, were loth to leave their houses, but hovered about the windows and balconies, till they some of them burned their wings and fell down. Having stayed, and in an hour's time seen the fire rage every way, and nobody to my sight endeavouring to quench it.
I [went next] to Whitehall with a gentleman with me, who desired to go off from the Tower to see the fire in my boat ; and there up to the King's closet in the Chapel, where people came about me, and I did give them an account [that]dismayed them all, and the word was carried into the King.
They seemed much troubled, and the King commanded me to go to my Lord Mayor from him, and command him to spare no houses. Extraordinary goods carried in carts and on backs. At last [I] met my Lord Mayor in Cannon Street, like a man spent, with a [handkerchief] about his neck.
To the King's message he cried, like a fainting woman, 'Lord, what can I do? I have been pulling down houses, but the fire overtakes us faster than we can do it. So he left me, and I him, and walked home; seeing people all distracted, and no manner of means used to quench the fire.
The houses, too, so very thick thereabouts, and full of matter for burning, as pitch and tar, in Thames Street; and warehouses of oil and wines and brandy and other things. On February 24th Pepys notes in his diary: Asking Sir R Viner what he thought was the cause of the fire, he tells me that the Baker, son and his daughter did all swear again and again that their Oven was drawn by 10 a-clock at night.
That having occasion to light a candle about 12, there was not so much fire in the bakehouse as to light a match for a candle, so as they were fain to go into another place to light it.
That about 2 in the morning they felt themselves almost choked with smoke; and rising, did find the fire coming upstairs - so they rose to save themselfs; but that at that time the bavins were not on fire in the yard. So that they are, as they swear, in absolute ignorance how this fire should come - which is a strange thing, that so horrid an effect should have so mean and uncertain a beginning.May 14, · Anne Frank’s Diary MONDAY 26TH JULY Dearest Kitty, Yesterday was a very tumultuous day, and we’re still all wound up.
