Excerpt from The Burning of Chelsea

This book is intended by its author to be a story of the burning OF chelsea as he saw it, - a contribution to local history based on personal knowledge and observation. No one man saw, or could see, all the phases of the conflagration, but the writer saw more than most. He was actively engaged during the entire course of the fire in the saving of persons and property, and was able to closely observe the whole progress of the flames. He served as a volunteer fireman for many hours and afterward on provost guard, being at work continuously for forty-eight hours without sleep. As he was thus present during the entire period of great est stress, his narration consists oi first hand facts.
