Monday 13th July 1846

“Two barges sunk last night in Basin, ‘The Sovereign’ with Stewarts and ‘Good Intent’ with Eden Main. Supposed to be the neglect of lightermen in not pumping them yesterday last thing. Kettle of tar boiled over in Wharf and made an alarming blaze, which was at length smothered: it might have proved serious had it been set near the stable.”
