THE RECENT FIRE AT CHINNOR
To the Editor of the THAME GAZETTE
Dear Sir,—If you can kindly spare me the space in your columns, I want to express sincere appreciation for the willing help rendered in the time of my emergency the other Sunday. I fully intended asking of you this favour for last week’s issue, but through the extra pressure upon my time it was delayed. It will always be remembered that our neighbours did the very best they knew for all of us who were involved in such a sudden disaster. The sympathy that has been expressed and evoked on all hands has made the burden considerably lighter. Am glad to know that the cottagers who lost their furniture have been very materially helped. I may add that the collections on their behalf last Sabbath realised £2 16s. 0d. Thanking you in anticipation of this favour.
I am, dear Sir,
HERBERT S. BRAZELL
