of wind, hail and rain which swept
over the eastern part of Pennsylvania,

buildings were unroofed, some of them
Utterly ruined, thousands of panes of

were apparently placed in the grave
without a coffin and no clothing of any
sort was found. From the number of
the bones it is, thought they most be
