Yesterday afternoon Mr W Payne the coroner for London and the Borough of Southwark resumed for the third time at the White Hart Tavern Bishopsgate the adjourned inquiry respecting the circumstances connected with the late fire in Devonshire Street Bishopsgate and the death of Benjamin Amsell. The jury returned the following verdict - 'That the deceased lost his life at the fire that occured at the house Number 17 Devonshire Street and though there is no proof as to the origin of the fire yet the circumstances connected with it we (the jury) think are of a very suspicious nature.'
