      occasioned by a Person sticking a Candle against a Partition, by which said
      House, with all the Furniture, was entirely consumed, and the House
      adjoining was greatly damaged. The loss sustained by Mr. Keefe and his
      Tenants, upon an exact Computation, amounts to 292l. 16s. 8d,. including the
      Expence of rebuilding the House and repairing the adjoining one; the
      Schedule of which is lodged in the Hands of the Rev. Mr. Darby, Curate of
      St. Michan's Parish, who was present at the Fire, in whose Hands also proper
      Affidavits may be seen, to authenticate the Particulars of the Loss, which
      has reduced said Keefe and his Tenants to the greatest Distress having
      deprived them of all their All. It is humbly hoped that the Public will take
      the Case of their unhappy Sufferers into their Consideration. Subscriptions
      will be thankfully received by the Rev. Mr. Darby above mentioned, who can
      certify the Truth of this Advertisement.
