Mr. Breedon of Barwell

One day last week as one Mr. Breedon of Barwell, near Ashby-de-la-zouch, having loaded his waggon with lime, climbing the same, to adjust something he thought amiss, both feet slipped through the spokes of one of the wheels; the horse being in full keep, and the flies biting ’em, made ’em push suddenly forwards, by which means both legs were terribly broke, one foot being almost twisted off a little above the ankle, and the other leg being broke just below the knee, that the bone pushed out a considerable way, part of which was sawed off; notwithstanding which, the surgeon has hopes of his recovery.
