Subject: happy? – Mar 2 (Albion Mills burn)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 02 Mar 06 - 07:58 AM

The steam powered Albion Mills burn down,3/2/1791. The common people didn't much mind.

        When it broke out the people ran,
        'Where is the fire now?' says one,
        At the A----n Mills, the people say,
        Why d--n it let it burn away!
        For its destruction who does care,
        For it has been wished many a year;
        For the bread it such a price did keep,
        Now let's hope it will be more cheap.

                "The Baker's Glory," (a broadside) in A Ballad History of England, Roy Palmer
