The Fire Of London





ONE speaking of the fire of London, said, Cannon Street roared, Bread

Street was burnt to a crust, Crooked Lane was burnt straight, Addle Hill

staggered, Creed Lane would not believe it till it came, Distaff Lane

had sprung a fine thread, Ironmonger Lane was redhot, Seacoal Lane was

burnt to a cinder, Soper Lane was in the suds, the Poultry was too much

singed, Thames Street was dried up, Wood Street was burnt to ashes, Shoe

Lane was burnt to boot, Snow Hill was melted down, Pudding Lane and Pye

Corner were over baked.
