VIII. 202. Letter from the Lords of the Council to the Lord
Mayor and Court of Aldermen, with respect to the late fire near
Arundel House, at which the good use of the engines for spouting
water (fn. 1) manifestly appeared, though there were none brought until it
was late, because there were no engines in the parishes near thereabout; recommending that a frequent provision should be made of
them, so that they might be near and ready at hand on all occasions,
and that the great parishes should provide themselves with engines,
and the lesser ones should join together in providing them; and conveying their thanks to Mr. Sheriff Atkins, (fn. 2) who did good service in
person at the fire.

IX. 39. Letter from Sir William Morrice to the Lord Mayor and
Common Council, informing them that His Majesty had seen and
considered some propositions for relieving all people that might suffer
from accidental fires, and for setting a constant provision for the poor
in all Cities and Corporations. He intended to bring the same
before Parliament, and had appointed certain persons to attend the
Common Council to consult and advise with them upon the subject.
If they approved, they should commend the same to Parliament.
