By the floods occasioned by the heavy rains, great damage hath been done in this neighbourhood to the grass that was cut down, as well as to that which is standing, by its being filled with sand and gravel; and on Monday two horses at Crete-bridge, in the Stratford road, and one near Harburn, were drowned; and a man was drowned in endeavouring to cross Stone-bridge near Meriden."
