Single sheet printed on one side only, 233 x 161mm, cont. hand-written notation dates the hurricane to Nov. 23, 1821, some light browning, margins cut-close. Discussing hurricane damage in various parts of the south-west; '120 apple-trees were blown down in the parish of Crimchard; many houses were unroofed; two were blown down to the parish of West Lambrook, and five children buried in the ruins; near five thousand panes of glass were broken in the hot-houses at Avishays during the storm; a road-waggon was blown over on Windwhistle Down, between Chard and Crewkerene, and the driver killed on the spot. The damage that has been done to the shipping in the channel is incalculable, three vessels have been wrecked, and every soul on board perished. On the coast of Devon great destruction has been made in the fishing trade, 21 lives lost, and the damage estimated at £1,200. Thus making a total of twenty-eight lives lost during the hurricane.' [added in a cont. hand '31 lives were lost at, and near Clowelly']. Not listed on Copac. N° de ref. de la librería 28997
