Quotation"In the afternoon, a most violent storm of rain and hail, accompanied with more dreadful thunder and vivid lightening than had ever been remembered by the oldest person living, fell in Oxford and Salisbury, and other places in their neighbourhood. Several streets were overflowed; the lightning was almost one continued flash for two hours, the fourth-western firmament, in particular, frequently appeared one vast expanse of fire."
