A few nights ago, a Fire broke out in the House at Mount Wolseley, near Tullow in the County of Carlow, formerly the Sear of Sir Richard Wolseley, Bart. And wherein Robert Doyne, Esq, lived, which entirely consumed the same: It was owing to the Carelessness of a Maid Servant, who had brought some Fire from the Kitchen in order to put in the Parlour Grate, but her Master desiring her not to mind it, for that he would go to Bed, she left it under a Table in the Hall, and going about some other Business forgot it and went to bed: Mr Doyne, his Housekeeper, and a little Boy that lay with her, narrowly escaped being burned, by jumping out of a Two Pair of Stairs Window on a Feather Bed; but the Woman is so terribly hurt that her Life is despaired of.
