On Sunday night, four miserable creatures were discovered, half dead with cold, huddled together under one of the dry arches of London Bridge. They had collected a little straw, and had piled up some bricks on each side of their gite, as brcakweathers. One of them was an old sailor, and he lay outermost, as he was the hardiest.. Two of these outcasts were so ill as to be conveyed to the hospital in a hopeless state.
