DIE Mercurii, 1 Decembris.
Domini tam Spirituales quam Temporales præsentes fuerunt:
Chimney, near the House, to be secured from falling.
The House being informed, "That there is Danger of a Chimney falling on the Roof of this House:"
Sir Christopher Wren was called in; and acquainted their Lordships, "That the Chimney is dangerous, and a high Wind might blow it down; but that he could secure it in Two or Three Days."
And then withdrew.
